A teenager who took a kitchen knife to the Bentall Centre has been given a referral order.

The 16-year-old from Thornton Heath, who cannot be named for legal reasons, took the weapon to the Kingston shopping centre on November 13, last year.

He was sentenced on his first appearance at Wimbledon Youth Court on January 8.

He was also ordered to pay £15 in victim surcharge costs, which goes towards compensating victims of crime.
