A BOY locked up for gun robbery when he was just 15 is facing a further custodial sentence after two shotguns were found at a house in Huddersfield.

The Crosland Moor youngster was given 36 months in March last year after admitting using an imitation firearm to hold up a shop.

But during a hearing at Bradford Crown Court yesterday the teenager pleaded guilty to further firearms offences relating to the discovery of the weapons at a house in Moor End Road on January 4 last year.

The boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, admitted possessing a sawn-off shotgun and a single barreled shotgun without a firearms certificate.

Because of his age he could face a minimum of three years behind bars for the latest offences. A judge will decide whether the sentence should be consecutive or concurrent to the one he is already serving.

Judge Peter Benson told him that he should expect a substantial period of custody when he is sentenced alongside a 36-year-old man on February 28.
