A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been handed more unpaid work after failing to turn up for appointments.

Daniel Biddle admitted failing to comply with the requirements of a community order when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford.

The court heard the 18-year-old had failed without reasonable excuse to comply with the requirements of a community order made by Lanark Sheriff's Court on April 6 by failing to attend an unpaid work appointment on July 5 and failing to turn up for a supervision appointment he had been instructed to attend by his supervising officer on July 20.


He had also failed to provide acceptable evidence to cover his absence within five working days, the court heard.

The order was varied and Biddle, who is of Foster Crescent, in Leominster, was ordered to complete 10 more hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months.

No order for prosecution costs was made due to Biddle's lack of means.
