Vincent Uzomah was stabbed in the stomach in an attempted murder at Dixons Kings Academy in Bradford

A 14-year-old Bradford schoolboy has been detained for 11 years for stabbing Dixons Kings Academy supply teacher Vincent Uzomah in an attempted murder.

The attack happened after the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, rowed with Uzomah over a mobile phone on 11 June.

During his trial at Bradford Crown Court, jurors heard how the boy racially abused the teacher using the n-word in the build up to the stabbing.

The teen later boasted of what he had done on Facebook writing: "the m*****f****r getin funny so I stick the blade straight in his tummy." The status was 'liked' by 69 of the boy's friends, the court heard, and described by judge Durham as "sick".

Uzomah had only been teaching at the school for seven weeks when the attack occurred and was hospitalised for a week after. Speaking outside court, he told reporters he was unsure if he would ever return to the classroom.
