MAGISTRATES revoked Mark Mitchell's 100-hour unpaid work order after hearing how he walked away from a work session.

Mitchell, 40, of The Crescent, Littleport, was originally given the work order for an offence of affray.

"He went to do unpaid work and was told to arrive half an hour early, and was then told to wait outside for half an hour," explained solicitor Jacqui Baldwin.

"He was soaking wet, and was told to take his phone earpiece out. He did not want to remove the earpiece because he wanted his partner to be able to contact him, and he left the session."

Mitchell admitted breaching the order through his unacceptable behaviour. Ely magistrates replaced the work order with a 12-month supervision order, and referred him to the probation service's complex cases unit.
