A third teenager has now admitted his part in an attack during which a boy was stabbed in Norwich.

A 16-year-old boy, who has not been named and has since turned 17, was knifed following a fight involving 10 youths in Mountbatten Drive, Old Catton on March 22 last year.

Detectives arrested three boys, all 17, in connection with the incident.

A 17-year-old, who cannot be named, for legal reasons, charged with perverting the course of justice appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday (March 10) when he pleaded guilty to the offence.
