A 10-year-old German boy stole nearly €17,000 (£14,700) from his parents to pay off a series of schoolboy bullies.

The boy’s ordeal started in March, when a 12-year-old threatened to send his elder brother to attack the younger child if he did not pay.

“Because the older brother is known not to be a softie, the boy was really frightened and always delivered the money,” said a police spokesman in Aalen, the town in the southern German state of Baden-Württemberg where the boy lives.
