The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Manchester magistrates to deny intending to cause a named male grievous bodily harm on August 30 last year.

Otherwise known as Section 18 wounding, this is the most serious form of assault in legal terms after attempted murder.

He was released on conditional bail pending a further appearance at the court on June 5.
