A teenage boy has admitted stabbing another boy outside Colne Valley High School.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, stabbed another teenager during a fight outside the academy in Linthwaite last year.

He appeared in Leeds Crown Court today (Wednesday).

At a previous hearing, the defendant had pleaded guilty to one count of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and one count of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

The attack took place on September 6, 2017.

Nine witnesses have provided statements.

He was released on bail again and will appear in Bradford Crown Court on January 25.
