MAGISTRATES ordered 20-year-old Rhys Chapman to carry out an extra seven hours of unpaid work, after hearing that he missed a community work session last month.

Chapman, of Main Street, Witchford, was originally given a 150-hour work order for an offence of affray.

The court heard that Chapman had been suffering from depression, and had completed 14 hours of the order so far.

"This order is something constructive to give back to the community rather than go to prison," Chapman was told by presiding magistrate Hamish Ross.
