A HEREFORD man has been fined hundreds of pounds after he was caught driving at The Oval.

Matthew Hayward was proven guilty of one count of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and one count of using a vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance by magistrates in Worcester in February.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 35-year-old had been caught out after getting behind the wheel of a Honda Civic without a licence authorising him to drive a vehicle of that class at The Oval in Hereford on August 10 last year.

He was also found to have been driving the car without a valid insurance policy in place on that date, the court heard.

Hayward, of Charles Witts Avenue, Hereford, was fined £660 and received six penalty points. He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £264 victim surcharge.
