A SOUTH Shropshire man has been fined by magistrates after failing to tell police who was driving his vehicle.

Stephen Mark Jones entered a guilty plea to one count of failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver or rider of a vehicle when required when he appeared before magistrates in January.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 28-year-old of Dalesbury, Craven Arms, had been required to give information relating to the driver of a Ford who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence to police in Avon and Somerset on January 13, 2023.

But, magistrates in Bath were told, he had failed to do so.

A charge of exceeding a 30 miles per hour speed limit was withdrawn by the court.

Jones was fined £369 and received six penalty points on his licence for the offence, with magistrates saying that they had taken his guilty plea to the charge into account when imposing the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and a £148 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
