    A disabled caravanner who kept a penknife in his glove compartment to use on picnics has blasted the authorities after being dragged through court for possessing an offensive weapon.
    Rodney Knowles, 61, walks with the aid of a stick and had used the Swiss Army knife to cut up fruit on picnics with his wife.
    Knowles yesterday admitted possessing an offensive weapon at Torquay Magistrates Court. He was given a conditional discharge.
    But speaking after the hearing, he said: 'It's a stupid law. Now I have a criminal record.'
    Prosecutor Philip Sewell told the court that Knowles was stopped by police when he left a pub on February 24.
