A SHROPSHIRE driver has been hit with points after they were caught without insurance in a supermarket car park.

Brian Richards, 73, was caught in the car park of Tuffins in Craven Arms in June 2022.

His car, a Fiat, was found not to be insured covering the use of the vehicle.

He had previously entered a not guilty to a single count of using a vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance, but was proven guilty in his absence at Telford Magistrates’ Court in January.

Richards, of Round Oak in Hopesay, was fined £660 and received eight points on his driving licence.

He was ordered to pay court costs of £620 and a £66 victim surcharge which helps fund services supporting victims of crime.

This must be paid in full by February 22.
