A LORRY driver from Herefordshire has been up before the magistrates after driving without due care and attention.

Michael James entered a guilty plea to one count of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or public place without due care and attention when he appeared before magistrates in Llanelli on April 22.


The court heard from Dyfed-Powys Police prosecutor Ryan Colamazza that the 58-year-old had driven a DAF lorry without due care and attention on the A484 near Cwrt Lando, Burry Port, on September 1 last year.

James, who is of Crowmoor Lane, Tillington, was fined £80 and received five penalty points for the offence. He must also pay prosecution costs of £85 and a £32 victim surcharge.

James was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Harry Dickens, and was given until May 20 to pay his balance to the court in full. This allowed him 28 days from his court appearance to make payment.
