A teenager found with a knife and hammer on a Workington street has been left with a court bill of more than £1,000.

The 17-year-old appeared at the youth court on Friday to face three charges.

The boy denied having the weapons in Fountains Avenue in the town on November 25 last year.

He also pleaded not guilty to using or threatening unlawful violence on the same date.

But he was found guilty of all three offences.

District Judge Gerald Chalk ordered the boy to carry out 180 hours of unpaid work and observe a 12-week curfew from 8pm to 6am.

The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was also ordered to pay £700 court costs, £350 compensation and a £20 surcharge.
