Stabbing at school in Bradford

A 14-year-old boy has been charged with attempting to murder a teacher in a school.

The teenager was arrested after supply teacher Vincent Uzomah, 50, was stabbed in the stomach as he began a science lesson at Dixons Kings Academy in Bradford yesterday morning.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it has decided there is sufficient evidence to charge the boy with attempted murder and he will appear before magistrates in Bradford tomorrow.

The attack took place at 8.55am on Thursday at Dixons Kings Academy. Mr Uzomah, who had been working at the school for a few weeks, was taken to hospital and was last night said to be in a stable, non-life-threatening condition with his family by his bedside.
