Bushay admitted to two counts of possessing a knife or sharp pointed article in a public place and one count of possession with the intent to supply cannabis, as well as possessing criminal property.

The pair were arrested on 7 June, after Thames Valley Police officers stopped Bushay when he was driving his car in Springfield Close.

When police officers inspected the car, they uncovered two large machetes and what they estimated to be £600 worth of cannabis, there was also £200 in the vehicle.

The other teenager was in the vehicle when the police search was conducted.
