A man has been given a suspended sentence after having a knife in a public place and driving on the A1(M) while disqualified.

Daniel Roberts appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on October 15.

He denied, but was found guilty of having a Stanley knife on the A1(M) at Junction 1 for South Mimms on the northbound carriageway on March 9.

Roberts was unable to provide a good reason for having the knife.

At court he admitted driving a white Vauxhall Combi van while banned from driving, without insurance and with false number plates.

The 42-year-old was jailed for 12 weeks, suspended for 12 months.

He was ordered to pay victim services £115 and £300 court costs.

Roberts, of Cappell Lane, Stanstead Abbotts, was fined £210.
