Tripwire trap teens let off for wounding.


TWO teenage girls escaped formal punishment after sending a letter and flowers to a cyclist critically injured when they filmed her sent flying by their tripwire trap.

Siobhan Delamare, 23, a teaching assistant suffered throat injuries, bruising and cuts after the rope hit her neck. But the girls, 13 and 15, face no criminal action after a face-to-face "restorative justice" meeting. Siobhan, of Rockferry, Merseyside, said later: "They were very apologetic and said it was a prank gone wrong. They said they were just bored teenagers. I made it clear they could have killed me and they went quiet.."

Her angry mother Lynette said: "It's such a sick thing to do. She could have had her head chopped off."

Police said: "As a result of the meeting no further action will be taken."
