A 15-year-old boy has been sentenced after stabbing a 17-year-old five times.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced for GBH and possession of a bladed article in Slough on Friday, January 17. 

The charges relate to an incident on November 5 when the victim, a 17-year-old boy, was walking along Bantry Road, Cippenham at around 3pm.
