THREE Wrexham teenagers have been sentenced for their part in a "drunken brawl" outside a kebab shop.

Jack Honey, of Belgrave Road, appeared at Mold Crown Court for sentence on Thursday alongside Jacob Willmott, of Nant y Coed, and Dylan Davies, of Ashburn Way.

The three - all aged 18 - were convicted of violent disorder at a previous hearing.

Jemma Gordon, prosecuting, told the court at around 4.10am on October 16 last year, North Wales Police was alerted to a violent incident at the junction of Bridge Street and Brook Street in Wrexham town centre.

Officers attended, but when they arrived they found only Davies - whom they took home.

When CCTV from the area was reviewed it showed the three defendants - then aged 17 - fighting with a group of other males, who had come to the town from the Chester area.

Ms Gordon said it appeared from the footage, which was played to the court, that Davies was the main aggressor, and after he received two punches the whole group began to fight.

Punches were thrown as the incident spilled out onto the main road, into the path of cars and in sight of other people in the town that morning.

By the end of the fight, Davies could be seen with blood on his face.

Ms Gordon said it was reported that one of the Chester youths had attended hospital with a suspected facial fracture and hand fracture - but no medical evidence or victim statement had been put before the court regarding any injuries.

When the three were interviewed, he gave no comment - but Wilmott and Honey both made admissions, saying the other group had been abusive.

Patrick Geddes, defending Honey, told the court: "He fully accepts the incident was unpleasant - a drunken brawl - and it shouldn't have escalated to the point it did.

"Mr Honey's involvement is two punches and some bouncing around on the street.

"Had this young man not been intoxicated, he wouldn't have behaved in the manner he did."

Henry Hills, defending Davies, said: "He is ashamed of his behaviour.

"He's normally polite, thoughtful and considerate.

"The pre-sentence report clearly indicates that Mr Davies shows remorse and indeed victim empathy.

"Dylan Davies comes from a supportive and loving family.

"He is an apprentice plumber [and] has a strong work ethic."

Simon Rogers, defending Wilmott, said: "There are a number of punches delivered between the two groups who were, in reality, up for a fight I am afraid."

He said his client had initially acted as a "peacemaker" - attempting to prevent the violence from starting.

But when it did, he got involved.

Mr Rogers added: "He has no previous convictions, cautions or reprimands.

"He has expressed remorse and embarrassment and there's no suggestion he ever behaved this way at school."

Judge Nicola Saffman said: You were clearly all intoxicated.

"It was a terrible public order matter."

Jack Honey and Jacob Willmott each received a three month community order, which includes three months' curfew.

Davies received a 12 month community order with six months curfew.

After hearing the sentences, concerns were passed forward to the Judge about pre-booked holidays Willmott and Davies had on their calendars, then about the impact of the curfew hours on Honey's ability to work weekend shifts at a supermarket.

Judge Saffman told the court: "This is a very lenient sentence for these men.

"Irrespective of pre-booked holidays, there must be punishment.

"Frankly I am getting a little perturbed - we shouldn't be having this conversation.

"You can't come into court bartering for sentences.

"They're young men. There will be other holidays. I am not changing that curfew."

Each of the defendants must pay £420 costs.
