Three girls deny school stabbing
Three teenage girls are to stand trial in connection with the stabbing of a pupil at a school in Surrey.

A 14-year-old pleaded not guilty to wounding with intent in a hearing at Guildford Crown Court on Friday.

She is accused of stabbing a 15-year-old girl in the eyelid with a pair of scissors last November.

Two other schoolgirls, both aged 15, pleaded not guilty to perverting the course of justice. None of the accused can be named for legal reasons.

Judge John Crocker agreed to substitute a charge of grievous bodily harm with intent against the first girl to a charge of wounding.

All three defendants were released on conditional bail ahead of the trial, which is due to begin on 29 August.
