A teenage schoolboy appeared in court over an incident in Ilkley.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons due to his young age, appeared before the West Yorkshire Youth Court, in Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court on June 13.

He was charged with using threatening/abusive words/behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The offence, which the boy pleaded guilty to, happened earlier this year.

He was referred to the Bradford Youth Offender panel for a period of six months.

The Bradford & District Youth Justice Service identifies the needs of young offenders by assessing the problems making them offend.

It also measures the risk they pose to others. This determines the programme they are put on with the intention of preventing further offending.
