The 46-year-old man was stopped by police when he was cycling up Sticklepath Hill with no lights.

A man who was stopped by police had a sharp object up his sleeve and drugs in his sock.

Martin Greenlee, 46, of no fixed abode, was halted when he was cycling home with no lights.

He had a 10-inch diamond file up his sleeve which he said he had borrowed from a friend that evening to file his guitar frets.

The sharp object did not have a sheath and so Greenlee had put it along his arm to avoid hurting himself if he fell off his bike.

Police searched him and found he had a quantity of cannabis in his sock. When he was strip-searched officers also found he also had 72g of amphetamine.

He was fined £120 and given a 12-month conditional discharge.
