A TEENAGE girl who assaulted two police officers in Poole has been given an electronic tag by a court.

The 15-year-old, who cannot be named, admitted three offences at the youth court on January 21.

She pleaded guilty to assaulting PC Charlotte Staples and Sergeant Danny Tamblyn in Poole on May 12, after initially entering not guilty pleas to the charges.

The girl also admitted assaulting a woman by beating her at Lighthouse, Poole on July 31.

Magistrates made her the subject of a youth rehabilitation order, under which she must participate in a 'reparation' programme for six days.

She was also given a three-month electronically-monitored curfew, as part of which she must remain at her Poole home between the hours of 7pm and 7am.

In addition, the girl was told she must attend appointments with a supervisor.
