A SOUTHAMPTON driver has been disqualified for seriously injuring a motorcyclist near Alresford.

Mihai-Cristian Osiac, 40, knocked over the un-named biker on the A272 near Beauworth after failing to give way at a junction.

Osiac, of Unwin Close, Weston, admitted driving a Vauxhall Insignia without due care and attention on September 27 last year.

Magistrates in Basingstoke disqualified him for three months, fined £600 with a £60 victim surcharge and costs of £85.
