Youth admits two burglaries in a day

a 16-YEAR-OLD Dublin boy has admitted burgling two houses on the same date.

He was remanded on bail by Judge William Early at the Dublin Children's Court.

He admitted carrying out burglaries at two houses in Tallaght on March 22, possessing heroin for sale or supply at Talbot Street in Dublin City Centre on November 13, a breach of the peace which occurred at Tallaght District Court on May 15 and another breach of the peace last month in the Tallaght area.

He also entered a not guilty plea in relation to an alleged street robbery but no trial date has been set for that.

A young man who crashed his father's £100,000 supercar in to a neighbour's house has been handed a 15-month suspended jail sentence - and had his pocket money stopped.

Harry Bishop (19) came home drunk from a night out with friends and took his father's powerful Audi R8 for a spin without his knowledge.

He was unable to handle the car, smashing it into the home of an elderly couple, causing £25,000 in damage.

He was also handed 200 hours unpaid work, a three-month curfew, and banned from the road for 30 months.

A blind woman claims she was refused entry to the British Grand Prix at Silverstone because her guide dog was a "health and safety" risk.

Kate Young (51) was left feeling "crushed" after being told that someone could fall over her golden retriever, Star, when she rang up a week before to say she would be taking the dog.

Mrs Young was told that dogs were not allowed in and so she stayed at home while her family went.

But she later heard that celebrities were allowed to take their pets inside, including Lewis Hamilton.
