Failing to comply with the instructions of a court has left a Maryport man having to do unpaid work.

Peter William Little, 34, of Grasmere Terrace, appeared at West Cumbria Magistrates Court in Workington.

He admitted breaching a court order.

Magistrates were told that Little had failed without reasonable excuse to comply with the requirements of the community order.

He had, they heard, failed to attend appointments as instructed on November 25 and December 9 last year.

Little was told to do 20 hours of unpaid work and pay costs of £60.
