Wick teen who flushed goldfish down toilet sentenced

A teenager who flushed a school's goldfish down the toilet has been ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid community service.

Kevan Fraser, 17, managed to get inside Lybster Primary in Caithness through an unsecure door on 21 October last year.

Wick Sheriff Court had earlier heard that he then took three goldfish from a tank and flushed them down a toilet.

Sheriff Andrew Berry had told Fraser, from Wick, that his treatment of the pets had been "unpleasant".

Sentence had been deferred for a background report.
