A HEREFORDSHIRE driver has been handed a fine after he was caught with a bald tyre.

Andrei-Cornel Macaveiu entered a guilty plea to magistrates in Hereford.

The court heard the 26-year-old had been caught driving a Volkswagen Passat in Hereford's Mortimer Road with a tyre in an unroadworthy condition on March 8.

The court heard a rear tyre on the car was so worn that the cord was showing.

Macaveiu, of Union Street, Hereford, was fined £184 and handed three penalty points. He must also pay costs of £90 and a £34 victim surcharge.
