A TEENAGER who boasted “I like being a racist” has admitted breaching the terms of his youth rehabilitation order.
The 15-year-old, who lives in care and cannot be named for legal reasons, hurled racist insults at a worker in Burnley on November 9.
He pleaded guilty to using racially-aggravated threatening or insulting behaviour and criminal damage on the same day. Magistrates at Burnley Youth Court sentenced him to a renewed 12-month youth rehabilitation order and imposed a six-week curfew between 8pm and 7am.
