A 49-year-old man has been spared jail after carrying two cut-throat razors, a knuckle duster and a metal-headed walking stick in public.
Dagenham resident Leonard Lowe was handed a 12-week sentence, suspended for 12 months, at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

He was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115 and court costs of £250. He will also have to carry out a rehabilitation activity requirement.
