Our Lady's School in Bangor The fire in February damaged a detached classroom block

A teenager has admitted he was involved in a fire which caused £111,000 damage at a primary school.

The 14-year-old was accused of arson at Our Lady Immaculate RC School in Bangor, Gwynedd, last February.

Caernarfon Youth Court had previously heard the youth told a teacher that he and another youth had petrol but later denied this to police.

He will be sentenced in September.
