A man who has failed to attend any of his probation appointments must complete an extra 10 hours of work in the community.

Mark Devereux of Springfield Road, Grantham, had previously been sentenced to 50 hours of unpaid work but must now complete 60.

Giles Tyas, defending, said Devereux, 30, is more than willing to complete the unpaid work, arranging it around his job.

Mr Tyas said: “He is looking considerably better and behaving considerably better now he is back in the world of work.”
