One of four defendants accused of murdering a man in a street attack has changed his plea mid-trial.

David Walsh, 45, died after he was found badly injured in a street in Hendon, Sunderland, on 20 November. He died later in hospital.

He suffered 34 separate wounds, including blunt force injuries and stab wounds.

Raymond Brown, 37, had denied murder but changed his plea to guilty at Newcastle Crown Court.

Three other men, Patrick Duggan of Canon Cockin Street and Dalton Barnett of Fuller Road, both 19, and Mr Barnett's father, 40-year-old Charles Lamont of Villette Road, remain on trial.

They deny murder and violent disorder.

The trial continues.
