An 11-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to assault by beating.

The boy, who is from Stevenage but cannot be identified for legal reasons, assaulted a male in Hertford on December 9 last year.

He entered a guilty plea when he appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court last Thursday and was referred to the Stevenage Youth Offender Panel, where a plan will be put in place designed to help put right the harm done and prevent future offending.
