Probe into Telford street fight and stabbing targets 10 more suspects

A police probe into a violent street fight in Telford is now focussing on a further 10 suspects, it was revealed in court.

Four men appeared at Shrewsbury Crown Court on Monday in relation to the violence which say two brothers stabbed on the evening of June 29.

Andrew Prempeh, 21, of Burford, and Tyler Love, 20, of Burtondale, both Brookside; Declan Taverner, 18, of Fifth Avenue, Ketley Bank; and Neon Manu, 19, of no fixed abode, each denied the three offences they are charged with.

They pleaded not guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, violent disorder, and possession of an offensive weapon.

The case relates to an incident in Bank Way, Ketley Bank, at about 7.50pm on June 29, where officers found Shaun and Nathan Stephens with serious injuries.

The men were remanded in custody until December 3 for a preliminary hearing. The trial is expected to be held in January.

Mr Simon Parry, prosecuting, said the inquiry was continuing and that "a further 10 people were being investigated" by West Mercia Police relating to the incident where an axe and a sword were allegedly used.

The injured men have since been discharged from hospital.
