A teenager has admitted having a hunter’s knife in a public place in Welwyn Garden City.

The boy appeared at youth court in St Albans on September 26.

The court heard how he had had the knife in Ravenfield Road in Welwyn Garden City on August 15 and was unable to provide a reasonable explanation for having it.

The court issued a youth rehabilitation order.

The boy must take part in a reparation activity for four days at five hours per session.

He must go to Stevenage Attendance Centre for 12 hours.

The youth was ordered to pay victim services £20.

The knife was forfeited and will be destroyed.
