A Hatfield teenager has been found with 15 bags of a Class B drug.

On August 24 last year, the sixteen-year-old was found with the bags of cannabis in Hatfield.

At West and Central Hertfordshire Youth Court on June 20 he was given a youth rehabilitation order, in which he has to attend 20 days of supervised reparation work.

He must pay £20 to victim services and £85 court costs.

The same teen was already on a separate rehabilitation order for offences last year.

On November 8, 2017 he was found to be in possession of a large kitchen knife in a public place, on Church Road in WGC, as well as four wraps of cocaine.

That order has been revoked, after the teen failed to show up for three of the appointments in May this year.

The teen was due at his first appointment of the new order on June 23.
