The results are from a FOI request by the Express to West Yorkshire Police and date from April 1 2018 to March 31 2019. The figures do not solely refer to intential weapons, but those articles that can als be used or made into a weapon. They also include offences where threats are made to use weapon, but no item is actually seen. (Photos are for illustrative purposes only)
