A MAN who had a knuckle duster housing a locking knife blade in a Bournemouth park has appeared in the dock.

Bradley George Vernon Ennis, aged 34, admitted the possession of the offensive weapon in King’s Park on October 10, 2019.

He also pleaded guilty to having cannabis on the same day.

Appearing at Poole Magistrates’ Court on November 5, Ennis, whose address was given as Joy’s Road, Three Legged Cross, Wimborne, was handed a community order which required him to complete 15 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

He was also fined £75 and ordered to pay a £90 surcharge and £40 costs.

The knuckle duster and cannabis was to be forfeited and destroyed by police.

No action was taken on the breach of a conditional discharge order made on November 7, 2017.
