A 20-year-old Derbyshire man caught carrying a knife in public has been jailed for 22 weeks.
Derby Crown Court was told how Ashley Dunne was spotted on CCTV holding the blade in Lumsdale Road, Matlock.
Sanjay Jerath, prosecuting, told a previous Chesterfield magistrates’ court hearing that police observed CCTV from 3.30pm, on October 12, which showed the defendant and another carrying knives.

Dunne, of Poppyfields, Darley Dale, pleaded guilty to possessing a bladed article in public and he also admitted breaching a suspended sentence order imposed for previous offences, which included possessing a knife in public and affray.
Serena Simpson, mitigating, told the previous hearing Dunne who lives with his partner and provides care for his uncle, understood throughout that he faced a jail sentence because this was his second bladed-article offence.
Dunne, who has been remanded in custody since the end of December, was sentenced to 22 weeks of custody and ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge.
