A TEENAGER has accepted a police caution after he assaulted two Sunderland paramedics.

Thomas Byrne, had been charged with two counts of assault by beating paramedics Iain Heslop and Ryan Young, on December 4 last year, Sunderland magistrates heard.

The case against the 19-year-old had been adjourned to see whether he would instead qualify for a caution.

Police agreed and Byrne, of Purley Gardens, Newcastle, was cautioned for both offences on March 25.
