A 16-year-old boy who is said to have assaulted an older teenager at an out-of-town shopping centre is to face trial by jury.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded not guilty to a charge of actual bodily harm when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court. It is said he and others assaulted a 17-year-old boy at the Orbital Centre on June 21.
He was released on bail on a tagged curfew, banned from the Orbital Centre and its car park and told not to contact witnesses.
