A Workington man was jailed after he failed to turn up for appointments with the probation service.

Robert John Hadfield, 29, of Sycamore Road in Moorclose, admitted breaching supervision requirements imposed following his release from prison.

Magistrates sitting at the Workington court on Friday heard that Hadfield failed to attend three appointments or provide a evidence to excuse his absence.

The appointments should have taken place on January 3, 10 and 17.

Hadfield was jailed for 14 days.
