A Hatfield youth has been given a community order after carrying a kitchen knife in public.

Lucas Allen, 19, of Chennells, pleaded not guilty but was found guilty following a trial at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on January 15.

Without good reason or lawful authority, Allen had a kitchen knife in Goldings Crescent in Hatfield on August 5 last year.

He was given a community order and must carry out 80 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months.

The defendant was also ordered to pay victim services £85 and £500 court costs.
