A WALCOT man who was found with a wheel brace on his own street has been ordered to pay £319.

Joshua White, of Lennox Drive, pleaded guilty to possessing an offensive weapon in a public place at Swindon Magistrates’ Court.

The 30-year-old had the tool, which screws nuts on a vehicle’s wheels, on Lennox Street on September 10.

He was fined £200 and had to pay £34 to victim services and £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service.

The wheel brace had to be forfeited and destroyed.
