A paper boy who sued a newsagent for wrongful dismissal has lost his case at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in London.

Teenager Myles Bebbington was trying to claim more than £3,000 from Sturry News in Canterbury.

He had left his £20 a week round after a dispute arose over the time he had been asked to report to work.

When his original claim was rejected at a tribunal in Ashford, on the grounds that he was not legally an employee, his case was taken to appeal by the Children's Legal Centre.

However, the original decision has been upheld.
