TEENAGER James Hinton was made subject to a curfew after he admitted failing to complete a single hour of his 70-hour unpaid work order.

"It sounds to us that you don't want to do anything this court tells you," 19-year-old Hinton was told by presiding magistrate at Ely courthouse, Sue Griffin. "When a court makes an order, you have to do what you are told."

Hinton, of Harvest Way, Littleport, admitted missing two work sessions, on January 2 and 16. The curfew - which will be monitored through an electronic tag - requires him to stay indoors between 7pm and 7am for six weeks.

The teenager was originally given a 50-hour work order for an offence of criminal damage; and an extra 20 hours when were added for an earlier breach of the order.
