A teenager has admitted being involved in a fight outside a branch of McDonald's in which another boy was stabbed.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named due to his age, was one of three defendants accused of violent disorder in Ipswich on 13 June.

He had denied the charge but entered a guilty plea on the second day of a trial at Ipswich Crown Court.

The stabbed boy, also 17, and Rishawn Mohammed, 18, remain on trial.

They deny violent disorder.

The court previously heard a fight broke out at about 19:30 BST in the car park of the restaurant in Ravenswood Avenue.

During the violence, the victim's main artery in his groin was severed with a 12cm (5in) kitchen knife.

Mr Mohammed, of Hurricane Place, Ipswich, also denies wounding with intent and having a bladed weapon.

The 17-year-old who has pleaded guilty will be sentenced at a later date.

The trial continues.
