A HEREFORDSHIRE business has been fined hundreds of pounds by a court after failing to tell police who was driving one of its vans.

Ken's Tipper Hire Ltd was proven guilty in its absence of one count of failing to give information relating to the identification of a driver by magistrates in Truro, Cornwall, in March.


The business had previously entered a not guilty plea to the charge at an earlier hearing on August 24.
