Diversity lessons for attacker

A teenager who abused a same-sex couple on a bus in Greater London is to attend diversity lessons as part of his punishment.

The 15-year-old had already pleaded guilty to abusing Melania Geymonat and Christine Hannigan.

The teen and two others boys — one aged 17, the other 16 — pelted the women with coins on a night bus in Camden on Thursday 30th May; they also stole a handbag from them.

The 15-year-old received an eight-month youth referral order, extended from six months due to the homophobic nature of the attack.
