A 14-year-old boy sobbed in the dock yesterday after being convicted of attempting to rape a 13-year-old schoolfriend.

The boy was found not guilty of raping the girl on a disused railway line in Wolverhampton. The jury found him guilty of attempted rape.

The boy was also convicted on an 11-1 majority verdict of indecently assaulting the girl. He had denied all charges.

He was remanded on bail by Judge Christopher Hodson at Wolverhampton Crown Court for pre-sentence reports.
