A 15-year-old schoolboy, who was sentenced to 40 months in a Young Offenders' Institution for robbing a bank with an imitation firearm, was described in court as a "model pupil" who was motivated by greed.
The teenager, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, stole more than £2,000 after carrying out the raid at a Barclays branch in Liverpool.
He was turned over to the police by his mother, who was shocked to find a stash of cash, stained with dye, and a fake firearm in his bedroom.
