Nottingham man admits police station petrol bomb attack

A Nottingham teenager has admitted trying to burn down a police station during last year's riots.

Curtis Dejean, 19, from Welstead Avenue in Aspley, launched a petrol bomb at Canning Circus police station on 9 August.

He pleaded guilty to charges of arson and carrying explosives with intent to endanger life or property.

Dejean will be sentenced after the trial has been heard of 14 other men, who deny charges of riot.

Their trial is due to begin at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday - six of the accused men are also accused of being involved in the arson attack.
