A 15-YEAR-old boy is due to appear at St Helens Magistrates’ Court next month after he was charged with taking a knife on to school grounds.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was remanded on conditional bail after an initial appearance in court where he was accused of carrying the yellow handled blade on January 15.

Reporting restrictions mean neither the school nor the address can be published. The next hearing will take place on Tuesday, February 10.
