A woman has been sentenced for possessing an imitation firearm.

Kacey Jane Street-Harrison admitted that she had a BB handgun wrapped in metallic tape to look like a real weapon in Kendal.

The 18-year-old, of Vicars Garth, had the fake weapon in Captain French Lane on October 8.

At South Cumbria Magistrates’ Court, she was fined £100 for the offence.

The court ordered the BB gun to be taken off her permanently.
