A KNIFEMAN who was caught carrying three blades has been jailed.

Police found Lee Watts with a wooden-handled lock knife, a multi-tool lock knife and a fixed blade knife during an incident on Winwick Road in September 2018.

The 49-year-old was handed six months behind bars at Warrington Magistrates Court on Wednesday, January 29, after being found guilty of three counts of possession of a bladed article in a public place.

Watts, from Haslingden, was also told to pay court costs of £620 plus a £122 victim surcharge.
