A SOUTHAMPTON teenager has been hauled before magistrates after he was caught carrying a knife.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons due to his age, was caught carrying the knife early last year.

Appearing at Southampton Youth Court, he admitted two charges of carrying a bladed article in a public place.

The 16-year-old was remanded on unconditional bail until the next court hearing on July 18 for sentencing.
