Two teenagers have admitted stabbing a 17-year-old boy, on what was set to be the first day of their trial.

The victim was taken to hospital after being found injured in Waltondale, Woodside, in Telford, in February.

Connor Shepherd, 18, of Willowfield, Telford and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, both admitted wounding with intent and carrying a bladed weapon.

The pair will be sentenced at a later date.

At the hearing on Monday, Judge Jonathan Gosling advised the pair they would be facing long custodial sentences.
