Custody for 'Columbine' plot schoolboys
Two teenage boys who plotted a Columbine-style shooting at a school have been detained.
Thomas Wyllie and Alex Bolland, both 15, planned to shoot and kill pupils and teachers at the school in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
Wyllie was handed a 12-year custodial sentence while his co-defendant was given 10 years.
The teenagers, who were 14 at the time, were found guilty of conspiracy to murder at Leeds Crown Court in May.
