By Neil Lancefield

An investigation has been launched after a 13-year-old boy raped a female classmate of the same age after a sex education lesson at school.

Gwynedd Council in North Wales is to hold an inquiry into the incident, which happened in 2012.

A council spokesman said: "As soon as this serious allegation was brought to our attention the matter was immediately referred to North Wales Police for investigation.

"Now that the legal process has been concluded, we will be working with North Wales Police and other relevant partners to carry out a detailed review of the incident to identify whether there are any lessons to be learnt."

The boy was given a 12-month referral order and will be on the sex offenders list for 30 months.
