A DRIVER failed to stop after hitting a Hereford tattoo parlour.

Samuel Frankland entered a guilty plea when he appeared before magistrates in Worcester.

The court heard the 23-year-old had hit and damaged the Aaargh Tattoo Parlour while behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Polo in Hereford's St Owen Street on December 23.

But Frankland failed to stop and failed to report the damage to police.

Frankland, of Hampton Bishop, Herefordshire, was fined £450 and received eight penalty points. He must also pay costs of £110 and a £45 victim surcharge.
