Clutha pub break-in admission

A TEENAGER who was part of the group that broke into the Clutha pub and stole alcohol and charity tins weeks after a helicopter hit the roof, killing 10 people, has been spared detention.

Billy Jo Revie, 16, pled guilty to breaking into the pub in Glasgow on December 17 and stealing items.

The teenager's case was dealt with at Glasgow Sheriff Court by Sheriff Joseph Platt who was involved in the case with those who previously admitted the same offence.

Revie was handed an 18-month community payback order with the condition that she will be supervised.

The sheriff previously sentenced Jordan Parry, 16, and Darren Melrose, 18, to six months detention after they admitted their crimes.

Charmaine Holmes, 17, who also pled guilty, was given a community payback order for 18 months with the condition she is supervised.
