A Great Cornard man is facing a prison sentence after pleading guilty to an attack in which another man was stabbed.

Luke Cornwall, 29, of Hawthorn Road, has been remanded in custody until he is sentenced next month.

He has admitted wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm during an incident in Gaol Lane, Sudbury, on July 8.

Previously, Cornwall had denied the charge and was due to go on trial at Ipswich Crown Court this week but changed his plea to guilty before a jury had been sworn in.

The victim of the stabbing – 31-year-old Christopher Greenidge – suffered three wounds to his arm and abdomen and required hospital treatment.

Judge Roderick Newton ordered the preparation of a pre-sentence report by the probation service while telling Cornwall: “You will be going to prison and it will be a sentence of some length.”
