A teenager has admitted murdering his younger half-brother during an incident at their family home.

Jazzie Francis Watson, known as AJ, killed 17-year-old Shamus Mcnama in Stothard Road, Lockleaze, Bristol, on February 28.

Watson, 19, pleaded guilty to murder during a short appearance at Bristol Crown Court.

The case was adjourned pending a report, for sentencing on August 30 before Judge Neil Ford QC, the Recorder of Bristol.

Watson was remanded in custody.

Shamus, who died in hospital from stab wounds, was due to become a father, according to tributes left close to his home.

Hundreds of flowers were left at the scene following his death, including a note and a picture of a scan of an unborn baby.

The note attached to the scan read: "RIP Daddy. I never got to meet you taken too soon but will always be a part of me and in my heart forever. Love from your beautiful baby girl."

Shamus is believed to have attended Orchard School and Filton High School before starting an apprenticeship at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.
