A man has been given a life sentence after he stabbed two men in Oxford.

Morgan Meragan, 25, was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday after he admitted one count of grievous bodily harm with intent.

Meragan, of Nisbit House, Hackney, north-east London, also admitted attempted robbery, and possessing an offensive weapon.

He was told he must serve a minimum of nine years in prison.

Thames Valley Police said Meragan stabbed a 35-year-old man in the legs in Oxford on 14 July 2016.

Four days later he stabbed a 22-year-old man in the back and shoulder during an attempted robbery in the city.

Officers arrested him in Swindon two months later, and a sheath knife was found in his possession.
