A teenager who attacked a fellow pupil during a school trip to a jail has been punished at a north Wales youth court.

The 16-year-old grabbed another teenager by the throat and threw a juice carton at his face during an anti-crime trip to Altcourse Prison in Liverpool, last October.

He admitted common assault on Tuesday, at Llandudno youth court.

The youth was ordered to pay £55 in compensation and surcharges and issued with a youth rehabilitation order.

Earlier this month, a Denbighshire teenager admitted assault after punching the same 14-year-old victim during the trip for youngsters with behavioural issues.
