A man seen brandishing a knife on a tram has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Simon Abbott, of Heddington Gardens, Arnold, was seen holding the knife after getting into an altercation with another man who threw a plastic bottle at him on the tram at Waverley Street at around 8pm on 10 May 2019.

CCTV from the tram also confirmed the witness reports.

The 41-year-old admitted possession of a bladed article and was sentenced to six months in prison - suspended for 18 months - at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday 20 December.

He was also ordered to pay a £150 victim surcharge and given a three-month curfew.

PC Craig Grimley, who led the investigation, said: "The incident was witnessed by a number of people and would have been distressing for people going about their business using the tram.

"Possession a knife in public is an offence and we will always seek to put people before the courts for carrying weapons."

A man has been jailed for 148 days after being caught with a craft knife at a food bank.

Mark Rose, of Ilkeston Road, Nottingham, visited Grace Church Nottingham at the Ministry in Castle Boulevard with a friend at 11am on October 28 and was waiting outside when he was approached by a member of security staff who said she had been told he was carrying a knife.

He denied having a weapon on him but when he was searched he had a craft knife in his jacket pocket.

The 39-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article. He admitted the offences and was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (20 December).

PC Charles Willett, who led the investigation, said: "While Rose did not take the knife out of his pocket it is still an offence to carry a knife in public.

"This case should act as a warning to anyone thinking of carrying weapons that we will seek to put them before the court if we catch them in possession of weapons, regardless of whether they are used."
