A teenager has admitted carrying a knife in a public place in the Woodhall area of Welwyn Garden City.

The youngster, who is under the age of 16, appeared at St Albans Youth Court on February 28.

He admitted possession of a kitchen knife in the Woodhall area of Welwyn Garden City on Monday, February 5.

The boy was unable to give a good reason for having the knife in Cole Green Lane.

He also admitted possession of three bags of cannabis on the same date in the town.

Magistrates referred him to the Luton youth offender panel for a six-month contract.

His parent or guardian must also attend.

The youngster was also ordered to pay victim services £20 and £40 court costs.

The drugs were forfeited and will be destroyed.
