A March man has been sent to Cambridge Crown Court after admitting carrying a knife and a small axe in the centre of town.

Vincent Evans, of East Drive, also admitted resisting arrest when he appeared before magistrates in Peterborough.

Evans was arrested on September 19 after a police officer stopped and searched him in High Street, March.

He "indicated a plea of guilty" when he appeared in court charged with having a kitchen knife in a public place. He also admitted to carrying a 21cm metal hand axe.

The police officer injured his hand after arresting Evans but a police spokesman later said it was "a minor injury which thankfully didn't require hospital treatment".

Evans, 30, was committed to Cambridge Crown Court on a date and time to be fixed and released on unconditional bail.

He also admitted resisting a constable "in the execution of his duty" and will be sentenced for that offence, too.
