A man and two 16-year-olds involved in a conspiracy to burgle mosques have appeared in court.

Luke Wright, 27, and the teenage boys, who cannot be named because of a court order, pleaded guilty to conspiring to enter mosques, with intent to steal, between January 31 and April 5 this year.

Wright, of Thomasson Road, off Ambassador Road, Leicester, further admitted burgling the Masjid Al Falah Mosque, Keythorpe Street, Leicester, when money and miscellaneous papers were stolen, on February 6.

He also pleaded guilty to attempted burglary at the Masjid At-Taqwah Mosque and Islamic Centre, Harewood Street, Leicester, with intent to steal, on the same day. The Leicester Crown Court case was adjourned until September 12, for the preparation of pre-sentence reports.

Wright was remanded back into custody and the two juveniles were released on bail.
