A man accused of having an offensive weapon at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court faces arrest.

Paul Hinchliff, of Clare Hill, had been due at the Huddersfield court yesterday.

He is charged with attending there with an offensive weapon, a folding pocket knife, on April 7.

The 37-year-old faces a further charge of possessing class A drug heroin, also at the court on the same date.

Magistrates issued a warrant for his arrest when he failed to show up for the hearing.
