Teenagers face £1,000 bill for burning down shed

TWO boys aged 15 have been ordered to pay compensation of more than £1,000 after an arson attack on a home.

The lads, from Maltby, set fire to a garden shed and fence panel and caused damage to guttering and windows.

They admitted charges of arson at Rotherham Magistrates’ Court, after the incident last October 20 at Pear Main Drive, Maltby.

Both boys’ parents were in court as they were sentenced. One defendant was given a 12-month curfew order and ordered to pay £525 compensation.

The other was referred to the youth offender panel for a 12-month period and ordered to pay the same amount.
