AN UNINSURED Herefordshire driver has been fined hundreds of pounds after he was caught out on the roads.

Paul Harvey Minshull entered a guilty plea to one charge of using a vehicle on a road or public place without insurance to magistrates at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court in March.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 58-year-old had been caught out after getting behind the wheel of a Hyundai Santa Fe in Hospital Road, Pendlebury, without a valid third party insurance policy in place on June 16 last year.

Minshull, of Pontrilas, Herefordshire, was fined £660 and received six penalty points on his licence for the offence.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £264 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
