A DRIVER caught out on the A49 without insurance has received penalty points and been ordered to pay hundreds of pounds by magistrates.

Andrew Phillip Jones was proven guilty of one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without third-party insurance by magistrates in Worcester. 

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 38-year-old had been caught out driving on the A49 at Leominster in Herefordshire after getting behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Polo on April 21.


Checks revealed that he did not have a valid insurance policy covering him to drive that car in place at the time.

Jones, of Corve View, Culmington, Ludlow, 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.
