A teenage girl has told a jury how she saw her 12-year-old friend being stabbed "out of the blue" by a boy with a "cheeky smile".
The witness said the group had thought the 14-year-old had punched her before he ran away.
"At first she stood there. Then she went pale. She started saying, 'Ow. Ow'," she told the jury.
"She was screaming, 'Ow', and she pulled her coat down and we could see all the blood. We walked by Primark and she collapsed on the floor."
The court was previously shown footage of the moment Ava was stabbed and her alleged killer fleeing the scene.
The teenager said the boy and his friends had called her a "muppet" before the confrontation.
She added: "She was not really an argumentative person, she just did not really like random people saying stuff to her."

It is terrifying to think kids this age could get into an argument, and one of them has a knife with them, nevermind decides it's an appropriate time to use it. Whatever happened to a kid pushes you, you push back (at worst), everyone goes home?

"A schoolboy broke down in tears today as he was found guilty of murdering 12-year-old Ava White at a Christmas lights switch-on - while the girl's family cheered the verdict from the public gallery.

The 14-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had claimed he accidentally stabbed Ava in self-defence after a row over a Snapchat video during the festive event in Liverpool.

But a jury took two hours and eight minutes to convict him of murder, with more than 20 members of Ava's family celebrating after the jury foreman read the verdict.

The teenager, who appeared on video-link throughout the trial, put his head in his hands. He now counts among the UK's youngest convicted murderers.

CCTV footage showed the 'callous' boy and his friends going into a shop after the stabbing, where they bought butter for crumpets and arranged his hair for a selfie before going home to play Call Of Duty on a PlayStation 4."
