Dunne pleaded guilty to possessing a knife in public and he admitted breaching a suspended sentence order imposed for a previous offence which had also involved possessing a knife in public.

His case was adjourned until January 26.

A previous hearing at Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard how Dunne is facing a possible six-month custodial sentence because this latest offence is his second bladed article offence.
