Benjamin Huckerby, 19, of Mill Lane, Keswick, Levi Licorish, 18, of Music House Lane, Norwich and Lucas Philpott, 19, of no fixed address have all admitted their parts in the offences, with Huckerby also admitting possessing cannabis, and were to be sentenced today (April 3), but the case has been adjourned in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak and there is currently no new date for sentence.
