A teenager has been sentenced to 10 months for breaking into Orkney's St Magnus Cathedral, vandalism inside the church, and carrying a knife.

The sentence on Thursday was backdated to 13 November when Rodwell was arrested.

He was admonished on other charges relating to damage to shops and cars in the town.
