The Metropolitan Police has released CCTV footage of the horrific and widely publicised 30 May attack on a lesbian couple aboard a London night bus.


Last week, three teenage boys pleaded guilty to public order offences against the women - Melania Geymonat and her girlfriend, Christine Hannigan.

The youngsters - aged 15, 16 and 17 - appeared in court on Thursday after previously denying charges of harassment against the couple by using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.


Charges were dropped against another 17-year-old boy.

A two-day trial was expected to take place, but the youngsters admitted the offences prior to the proceedings beginning. 


Prosecutor Saira Khan had told the court that the teenagers had played various different roles during the incident, which lasted almost 10 minutes.
