Norfolk school stabbing: Boy, 17, remanded in custody

A boy has been remanded in custody charged with causing GBH with intent over an alleged stabbing at a school.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was a pupil at Langley School near Loddon in Norfolk, where the incident happened on Sunday.

The victim suffered stab wounds to his shoulder and elbow.

The accused boy appeared before Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court with bandaged hands and spoke through an interpreter to confirm name and age.

Magistrate chairman Angie Scott told the youth he would not be granted bail and would be remanded into custody until he appears before Great Yarmouth Youth Court on Thursday.

His left thumb and the palm of his right were bandaged when he appeared in the dock.

The identity of the victim has also been protected by the court which allowed the name of the school to be used.

The stabbed boy has been discharged after treatment at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
