A 14-year-old girl has been given a rehabilitation order after pleading guilty to four counts of arson.

The girl – who cannot be named for legal reasons – set fire to a number of industrial sizes bins, a skip and a shed in Letchworth between January 1 and January 28 this year.

She appeared at Stevenage Youth Court Thursday last week and was given the rehabilitation order by chairman of the bench Stephen Cane.

Under the order, she must comply with a curfew requirement and electronic monitoring.

She will be under curfew for three months and will have to be at her home address between 7am and 7am.
