Children with behavioural issues on a school trip to one of Europe's biggest jails ended with a pupil assaulting a fellow youngster.

The 15 year old from Denbighshire admitted common assault following a visit to Altcourse prison, Liverpool.

On Tuesday, Llandudno youth court heard the trip last October was meant to deter children from crime.

The teenager received a nine month rehabilitation order and must pay £150 compensation and costs.
