A man has pleaded guilty to trying to kill a Luton shopkeeper in the same place her husband was murdered seven years ago.

Jashbhai Patel was stabbed to death at Moon's newsagents, the shop he owned in Park Street in Luton in 2009.

In December last year, his wife was attacked in the same shop by a different man.

Tomasz Jaworski who is 30 and of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to her attempted murder and will be sentenced next month.

He also pleaded guilty to two counts of actual bodily harm on two other people during the same incident.

This was a serious and prolonged assault on three innocent members of the community by a very dangerous individual.

During this horrific attack he continually told a woman that he wanted to kill her, slashing her with a shard of glass as well as grabbing her around the neck, kicking and punching her.

He had also assaulted two more people beforehand, though fortunately they sustained only minor injuries.
