A 15-year-old boy from Hitchin has been charged with five sexual offences involving boys under the age of 13.

The accused – who cannot be identified for legal reasons – faces five charges, all relating to sexual activity with children under the age of 13.

St Albans magistrates bailed the boy on the condition that he lives and sleeps at home each night and has no unsupervised contact with anyone aged 11 or under.

He is due to appear before St Albans magistrates again later this month.
