KNIFE crime campaigner Eliza Rebeiro has been included on a new list celebrating inspirational women.

The Lives Not Knives founder features on the BBC's 100 women for 2014 list, which includes everything from human rights campaigners and politicians to charity fundraisers and sporting stars – with the 100 taken from a worldwide sample.

Eliza, 21, started Lives Not Knives aged 14, to give young people a support network after two of her friends were stabbed – one to death.

She has since turned it into a registered charity and last year opened a base at Centrale shopping centre, for young people to access free help and advice, particularly on accessing jobs and training.

Writing on Twitter earlier this week, Eliza simply said it was "pretty cool" to be included on the list.
