A teenager who admitted attempting to murder a six-year-old boy by throwing him off the viewing platform at the Tate Modern gallery in London has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Jonty Bravery, 18 was sentenced at the Old Bailey on Friday.

The six-year-old French boy, who was visiting London with his family, sustained a bleed to the brain, fractures to his spine and broken legs and arms following the fall from the 10th floor on to a fifth-floor roof. He cannot be named because of a reporting restriction.

The victim spent several weeks in intensive care before returning to France to continue his recovery.
