He claimed he took the weapon off another boy earlier that day to protect him but his web of lies unravelled when cops found images of him playing with the same knife on social media that week.

The teen has now been remanded into custody ahead of sentencing on December 6.

Ben's mother Sharon Hendry paid tribute to her son following the verdict.

She said he was loved by everyone who knew him and that his death had caused "total devastation".

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Mark Newbury said: "Our thoughts are with Ben's loved ones who we continue to support as they grieve for a much-loved son and friend. At 18 years old Ben had his whole life ahead of him, but it was snatched away.

"The outpouring of support Ben's family have received from his friends is a testament to how popular a young man he was.

"Tragically, Ben happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He didn't know the defendant and was entirely blameless.

"He was bravely standing up for a friend when the defendant made a conscious decision to pull out a knife and attack Ben knowing it would gravely injure him at the very least.
