A 16-year-old schoolboy has today (Wednesday) denied attempted murder amid allegations that a teenager was stabbed at a high school.

The defendant also denied an alternative charge of wounding with intent to inflict GBH.

His trial will take place on August 12 at Mold Crown Court before High Court Judge Mr Justice Picken.

The boy, who was 15 at the time of the allegations, appeared in the dock at Mold Crown Court today and pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and wounding with intent following an incident on February 11.

But he admitted two charges of possessing a pen knife as an offensive weapon at Eirias High School in Colwyn Bay on February 11 and two days earlier.

Judge Rhys Rowlands made various orders in readiness for the trial.

Another schoolboy was taken to hospital with injuries "not thought to be life-changing" following the incident and he was later discharged from hospital.
