Barrow man receives suspended sentence for carrying knife

A Barrow man caught carrying a knife in a street has been given a suspended jail term.

Robert Scott Winchurch, 33, pleaded guilty to carrying a knife in public in Furness Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

Winchurch, of Egerton Court, was caught carrying a kitchen knife with a three-inch serrated blade in Buxton Place, Barrow, on December 6.

Magistrates sentenced him to 110 days in prison, suspended for 12 months.

They said the offence was viewed so seriously because Winchurch was “in possession while drunk” and branded the incident “disgraceful behaviour”.

He was also ordered to pay an £80 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.
