MAGISTRATES have ordered an Andover man to carry out unpaid work after he was found with a knife in a public place.

On December 4, last year, Jemel Fenton, of Junction Road, was caught with a credit card knife while in the town.

At Basingstoke Magistrates Court on February 4 the 26-year-old admitted the offence.

Magistrates have ordered Fenton to carry out 150 hours unpaid work. He must also pay £85 court costs and an £85 victim surcharge.
