Man given conditional discharge for Workington blade crime

Carlisle Crown Court

A MAN has been conditionally discharged after being found in possession of a small blade at a Workington shopping centre.

Adam Spencer Bromley’s offence came to light after police were called to an Asda after “ill-founded” suspicions fell on a group he was part of. When searched, a small blade was found within the lining of Bromley’s jacket.

Carlisle Crown Court heard Bromley, 36, had used the item as part of his work as a roofer. However, the inch-long blade had fallen through a hole in his pocket, and he had forgotten about it.

Bromley, of Main Road, High Harrington, initially denied a charge of having a bladed article in public, but pleaded guilty to the crime in court today (WED). He had never appeared in a crown court before, hadn’t been in custody and there was an expectation of work, Recorder Kevin Grice was told.

As a result, Bromley was given a 12-month conditional discharge by Recorder Grice said: “Just remember what you are doing, because you can see how things can escalate if you don’t.”
