Teacher stabbing: 'I have forgiven this boy'

A supply teacher who was stabbed by a 14-year-old boy in a Bradford classroom says he has forgiven his attacker.

Vincent Uzomah, 50, was stabbed in the stomach with a kitchen knife at Dixons Kings Academy on 11 June.

The boy, who denied attempted murder but admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent, has been sentenced to 11 years' detention.

Mr Uzomah said: "I have forgiven this boy... I pray he will make use of the support provided to him to become a changed person."
