A man has pleaded guilty to murdering a 31-year-old in a knife attack.

Cameron Fields, 21, of Gresley Close, Leicester, stabbed Adam Bent in what police said was an unprovoked attack.

Mr Bent, also of Leicester, had been in the same bar in the Braunstone Gate area as Fields, with both men leaving at the same time, early on 16 July.

Fields is due to be sentenced at Leicester Crown Court on 24 November. A 16-year-old pleaded guilty to assisting an offender at an earlier hearing.

Police said Mr Bent ran into a local taxi firm to raised the alarm but while members of the public gave first aid, Fields fled from the scene.

Mr Bent died later in hospital from a single stab wound to the chest.

In a statement, Mr Bent's mother thanked those who tried to save her son.

Mary Pankhurst said Adam had the rest of his life ahead of him and they would have to live through the pain of losing him at such a young age.
