(2)Without prejudice to any power to issue a summons or warrant apart from this sub-paragraph, the court to which an application under paragraph 2(1) or 5(1) above is made may issue a summons or warrant for the purpose of securing the attendance of the offender before it.

(3)Subsections (3) and (4) of section 55 of the M1Magistrates’ Courts Act 1980 (which among other things restrict the circumstances in which a warrant may be issued) shall apply with the necessary modifications to a warrant under sub-paragraph (2) above as they apply to a warrant under that section, but as if in subsection (3) after the word “summons” there were inserted the words “ cannot be served or ”.

(4)Where the offender is arrested in pursuance of a warrant issued by virtue of sub-paragraph (2) above and cannot be brought immediately before [F2the court before which the warrant directs the offender to be brought (“the relevant court”)], the person in whose custody he is—

(a)may make arrangements for his detention in a place of safety for a period of not more than 72 hours from the time of the arrest (and it shall be lawful for him to be detained in pursuance of the arrangements); and

(b)shall within that period bring him before a youth court;

(a)a warrant has been issued under sub-paragraph (2) above for the purpose of securing the attendance of the offender before the court; or
