A wayward teenager who admitted having unlawful sex with a 14-year-old girl is to be locked up until Christmas to 'shock' him in to mending his ways.

Mr Justice Thomas Gall said there was no point in putting Wong Yun-lung, 18, on probation or ordering him to serve community service because he would probably not co-operate.

'It appears to me the answer might be a short sharp shock. A short clang of the prison gates,' he said in the Court of First Instance.

Wong will be released on Christmas Day.

He was cleared of raping the girl.
