DEMANDS have been made for better security at the Birmingham college where a teenager was stabbed.

The 17-year-old student was fighting for his life after the incident at Bournville College. West Midlands Police described the teenager’s condition on Sunday as “stable”.

A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with Friday’s stabbing and was being held in custody.

Witnesses said the student was knifed on the steps at the entrance to the building after a heated argument.

Police and paramedics were called to the Longbridge Lane campus at about 1.30pm on Friday, and the student was taken to the city’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Lessons were halted and the college was closed.

Comments have been posted on the college’s Facebook page about improving security at the £66 million site, which has only been open a year.
