Trio trouble

Police have been chauffeuring three "persistent truants" to school. The brothers, 12, 14 and 15, were picked up from their home in Braintree, Essex, and dropped off at the school after becoming subject to an acceptable behaviour contract. Police said reports of crime in the area have dropped. The boys will make their own way to school next term as their behaviour has improved.
