A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police described the knife as a "nasty looking blade" when they posted an image of it on social media. It was found, they said, during a search of the man's car boot.

The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife is four years in prison and an unlimited fine.

It's illegal to carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a folding blade with a cutting edge 3 inches long or less
