Knife carrier pleads guilty

Have your say

A MAN was spotted by a member of the public carrying a blade as he walked along a busy city centre street.

Simon Hill, 49, was arrested in Holyrood Road, after police received a tip-off that he had the weapon on display in a public place.

Hill, of Randolph Crescent, pleaded guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court yesterday to 
illegally possessing a knife on March 30 last year.

Sentence was deferred until later this month in order for the court to obtain reports about Hill’s character.
