Three in court over island attack

Alex Hughes is in a coma in a hospital in the island capital Palma

Three teenagers have appeared before a judge on the Spanish island of Majorca after an attack on a 16-year-old boy.

Alex Hughes, from Radyr, Cardiff, has been in hospital in a coma after a brain haemorrhage over a week ago.

His family say he was hit over the head with a bottle as he left a nightclub in the Port d'Andratx resort.

The teenagers, who are all aged under 18, have been placed in their parents' custody at home while the investigating judge decides what to do.

They have been implicated in the incident but there are no specific charges against the three questioned. The charges will depend on Alex's condition and if he recovers.

The three could be ordered eventually to stand trial at the island's juvenile court, but charges will not be decided for some time.
