Teenager admits Stokes Croft violent disorder

A 17-year-old boy has been given a two-year detention and training order for offences committed during protests in the Stokes Croft area of Bristol.

The teenager pleaded guilty to violent disorder and attempted theft at the city's youth court on Friday.

Trouble flared on 22 April after a peaceful protest at a recently-opened Tesco Express turned violent.

One week later there was more violent disorder in the same area. A total of 37 people have been arrested.
