Addressing the boy, who is also from Slough, Her Honour Judge Norton said: “Your trial is going to be on the seventh of November. That may be a long way away, but there is quite a lot of stuff that has to be done before then.

“You have to give your lawyers as much help as you can. They are going to need you to tell all the details about what happened so they can give me a defence statement.

“It is something your lawyers will write for you and what it has in it is why you say you are not guilty.
