MAGISTRATES have issued a warrant for the arrest of a Alresford man for alleged breaches of a community order.

Darren Shergold, 36, of Beauworth, has failed to comply with a community order by not attending unpaid work on September 2 and December 2, Basingstoke magistrates heard. Shergold also failed to give reasons for not attending court.

The warrant is not backed for bail. The community ordered was originally imposed for illegal possession of a knife.
