A man has admitted robbing and killing a teenager in Peterborough.

James Pettit, 22, of Restormel Close, Bedford, had been due to stand trial for the murder of Mohammed Sanghar, who died in April this year.

But he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and robbery before his Cambridge Crown Court trial began.

Pettit's co-defendant, Dino Fumo, 23, of St Michael's Road in Bedford, admitted a charge of robbery but denied manslaughter.

Pettit will be sentenced at a later date.

Mr Sanghar, 18, who was known as Haroon, was injured in Russell Street on 10 April and died in hospital the next day.
