Earlier this month at Northampton Magistrates’ Court the 19-year-old also admitted possession of cannabis after he was caught with 4g of the class B drug.

His sentencing was adjourned until August 14 so the probation service could carry out a pre-sentence report.

Magistrates granted him unconditional bail.
