Sumner confessed to one count of violent disorder.

Meanwhile, Sarr pleaded guilty to violent disorder and possessing a bladed article.

The 15-year-old boy admitted to one count of violent disorder.

Such convictions relate to the stabbing of two 18-year-old men inside Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre on January 13.

The victims, who were stabbed in the chest and back, have since fully recovered.

All convicted parties played a part in this brutal attack, with their sentencing reflecting the severity of their crimes.
