Three teenage boys have pleaded guilty to threatening a lesbian couple on a London night bus after the two women refused to perform a sex act.
Melania Geymonat and her girlfriend, Christine Hannigan, were on a London double-decker bus on 30 May when they were confronted by the boys.
The youngsters - aged 15, 16 and 17 - appeared in court on Thursday after previously denying charges of harassment against the women 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.
