Ann Maguire murder: Killing 'brutal and cowardly'

A 16-year-old boy has been jailed for life after he admitted murdering Leeds teacher Ann Maguire.

Mrs Maguire, 61, was attacked at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds in April. She had worked at the school for more than 40 years and had been due to retire.

Speaking outside Leeds Crown Court, Chief Superintendent Paul Money described Mrs Maguire's murder as a "cold-blooded, brutal and cowardly act".

He said the boy's motive appeared to be an "inexplicable hatred of his teacher who was simply carrying out her duty".
