MAGISTRATES added extra 14-hours to Kevin Scarff's unpaid work order this week, after he admitted visiting family in Birmingham rather than keep appointments with the probation service.

He admitted beaching his 100-hour order by missing work on January 2 and February 6.

Twenty-eight-year-old Scarff, of Queens Road, Littleport, was given his original 100-hour order back in December, for an offence of assault.

Only one hour had been credited to the order so far - when he attended an induction appointment.

"This is totally unacceptable behaviour," Scarff was told by magistrate Janet South at Ely courthouse.

"I need to remind you that this is a court order, and failure to comply could result in custody.
