A MAN caught with a knife in a Herefordshire supermarket car park will be sentenced next month.

Stuart Dalby entered a guilty plea to one count of possessing a knife blade or sharp-pointed article in a public place when he appeared before magistrates in Cheltenham in September.


The court heard from prosecutor Sue Gethin that the 47-year-old had, without good reason or lawful authority, been in possession of a folding pocket knife with a blade exceeding 7.62 centimetres in Ross-on-Wye's Station Street Morrisons car park on March 22 last year.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report to be carried out by the probation service and Dalby, of Newent, Gloucestershire, was released on unconditional bail.

He will appear before magistrates in Cheltenham for sentencing on October 2.
