KEVIN Gale persuaded magistrates to scrap his 200-hour unpaid work order this week - after completing just eight hours.
Gale claimed that his job's shift pattern made it impossible for him to comply with the work order that he was given back in April, for an offence of assaulting a police man.
Twenty-nine-year-old Gale, of Saffron Piece, Sutton, works four days on, followed by four days off and then four nights working, he explained to Ely magistrates.
Back in April Gale was also given a 12 month supervision order. The court was told he was complying well with that requirement.

Presiding magistrate Hamish Ross told Gale: "We understand your predicament; you are now in gainful employment. If the unpaid work order was to continue, it could result in the loss of your job, or a breach of the order, but it has got to be replaced with something."
The court revoked Gale's original sentence and gave him a new 12-month supervision order.
