CPS accepts brothers' guilty pleas


Two young brothers who lured two boys, aged nine and 11, to a South Yorkshire ravine before attacking them with bricks have admitted the assault.

At Sheffield Crown Court, the brothers, aged 10 and 11 at the time, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm.

Adrian Lower, head of the CPS complex casework unit for South Yorkshire and Humberside, said "Throughout this case, the prosecution team have had in mind the distress that attending court and giving evidence would cause all the victims."
