Three teenage boys have admitted threatening two women who refused to kiss on a bus.

Melania Geymonat, 28, and her date Christine Hannigan were pelted with coins on a Camden night bus on 30 May.

The teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 17, had previously denied charges of harassment by using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.

They admitted the public order offences before a scheduled trial at Highbury Corner Youth Court.

Prosecutor Saira Khan said the teenagers each played different roles during the nine-minute incident.

The court previously heard the women were surrounded by the boys and subjected to sexual gestures.

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