A 24-year-old has been fined hundreds of pounds after having a knuckle duster in a public place in St Albans.

Christy Kavanagh admitted having an offensive weapon in a public place, namely Charrington Place, when he appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on October 5.

The 24-year-old, of Springfield Road, St Albans, was unable to give a reasonable excuse for having the knuckle duster.

He was fined £800 and also ordered to pay £80 to victim services and £85 court costs.

The knuckle duster has been handed over to Herts Police and will be destroyed.
