A MAN who had cannabis on him whilst subject to a suspended jail term was spared being sent to prison.

Burnley magistrates heard how Shafqat Hussain, 21, who was also in breach of a conditional discharge, had a previous conviction for cannabis.

He had been given 150 days in custody, suspended for two years with a curfew in January, for taking a vehicle and banned driving.

Hussain, of Victoria Street, Nelson, admitted possessing cannabis.

He was fined £40 and given a two week curfew, seven days a week, between 6pm and 6am.

He must also pay £75 costs and a £15 victim surcharge. An allegation of being drunk and disorderly was withdrawn.
