A 17 year old student of Langley School, near Loddon, has been remanded in custody after appearing in court yesterday charged with grievous bodily harm with intent after an incident at the school on Sunday evening.
The youth was arrested following an incident in which another 17 year old male pupil was stabbed and left with serious wounds to his shoulder and arm.
The Loddon Eye has been led to believe that the teenagers involved were both overseas boarders at the independent day and boarding school situated two miles outside of Loddon. Unsupported claims have suggested that the weapon involved in the incident was a knife from the school’s kitchens.
The EDP reported that the teenage male, who cannot be named for legal reasons, spoke through an interpreter during his court appearance and made no application for bail as he had nowhere to stay and no support network in this country. He will appear at Great Yarmouth Magistrates today.
The victim of the attack, whose injuries have been reported as “not life-threatening” is being treated at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where his condition is being described as “stable”.
The EDP reported that headmaster of the school, Dominic Findlay, could not comment on the incident at this stage as it was part of a police investigation but that all students have been informed and spoken to.
He said: “They’ve been offered support if required and that’s as much as what’s been said to the students.”
