A 29-year-old man was fined £100 last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court, sitting in Newry, for a speeding offence.

Justine Wayne Ford, whose address was given as Kernan Hill Manor, Portadown, was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

For failing to produce his driving licence he was fined £50.

The court heard that on March 6 this year at 2.05pm police were behind the defendant’s vehicle on the A1 dual carriageway.

It was travelling at speeds between 75mph and 85mph in a 60mph zone.

A solicitor representing the defendant said he could have availed of a fixed penalty but his licence was not available at the time.
