Ten teenagers have been jailed for 124 years between them for the murder of Newton Aycliffe teen, Jack Woodley.

The defendants were handed lengthy sentences at Newcastle Crown Court on Friday afternoon.

It follows on from his fatal stabbing on October 16, last year, when he was attacked at Houghton Feast in Houghton-le-Spring.

The 15-year-old, who delivered the fatal blow, has been sentenced to a minimum of 17 years.

In court, the Judge said: "You chose to bring a knife with you from London. You had only been living in Haughton for a few weeks when you decided to make your mark.

"I'm satisfied you went to the Feast intended to be become involved in violence.

"I have concluded that you intended to kill when you inflicted the second stab wound."

Jack Woodley was fatally stabbed after being “surrounded and isolated” by a gang of youths who chased him down an alleyway in Houghton le Spring, Sunderland, last year.

He was punched, kicked, stamped on, and stabbed with a 25cm “Rambo style” knife during the attack on October 16, a jury was told.

Prosecutors said the group had gone out “looking for serious trouble that day” and tried to “create conflict” with Mr Woodley at the festival as they “looked for any excuse to attack someone”.

While the 15-year-old who inflicted the fatal wound was detained for a minimum of 17 years Judge Rodney Jameson QC sentenced the other nine defendants, aged between 14 and 18, to minimum terms of between eight and 15 years’ detention.

He told them that if they are then released, they will remain on licence for the rest of their lives.

Nine of the youths, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had denied murder and manslaughter.

One pleaded guilty to manslaughter, admitting he stabbed Mr Woodley but denying he intended to kill him, Newcastle Crown Court heard.

At the start of the trial in March, prosecutor Mark McKone QC said that while only one youth stabbed Mr Woodley, the other nine were guilty due to “the concept of joint enterprise”.

A jury convicted all 10 defendants of murder in June.

Sentencing the group, the judge said: “No sentence can restore Jack to his family and loved ones, or reduce the pain they will endure now and in the future.

“It may seem unfair that you will be able to live at liberty while still young men, while Jack cannot because of what you did.”

Judge Jameson said Mr Woodley had been due to start a job the Monday after he was attacked and was on the way to pick up keys for a new flat, saying he had “much to look forward to”.

He said the group had attacked Mr Woodley “solely for the excitement and pleasure of inflicting serious injury on an entirely innocent and randomly selected stranger”.

The judge told the defendants the violence inflicted on Mr Woodley “though short-lived, was appalling” and all of them “played a part in causing Jack’s death”.
