A teenage boy was missing from his mother’s home when police searched the address, a court was told.

The 14-year-old admitted breaching his bail. Blackpool and magistrates agreed to rebail him.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said the boy had been bailed awaiting trials for racially aggravated public disorder and racially aggravated damage.

The conditions of his bail were that he should live at either his mum’s home in Fleetwood or his father’s address in St Annes and keep an 8pm to 7am curfew.

On April 2 police went to the boy’s mother’s home at 8.40pm.

She told officers he had gone out to get a bus pass and not returned. At 9.25pm officers returned and searched the house, but the boy was not there.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said despite the breach, youth officers said the boy was doing well.
