The sentencing of a schoolboy who robbed a bank in Liverpool with an imitation gun has been adjourned until Tuesday 22nd October.

The 15-year-old, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, held up a branch of Barclays bank in Breck Road, Anfield in September and made off with more than £2,000.

His mother handed him in to the Police after she found the money in his bedroom.
