    Heard the lad involved with this chatting as loudly abd proudly as he could about it. Deliberately wanting to be overheard. What a tw*t.

      I don't think your in a position to comment on this unless you see this with your own eyes yourself. You "heard", i mean we all hear a lot of things but that doesn't mean its particularly true. You're there name calling on an article where a teen got badly injured?. You clearly don't want to be caught out who you are by your cryptic name on this site. This is an article from the Police appealing for witnesses, not asking for people to throw around what they "heard" by other people.
