A DRIVER has been fined for breaking a red light in his home village.

Daniel Taylor, 40, of Waterhouse Close, Twyford, drove a 02-reg Ford Focus with no insurance, driving whilst disqualified and failing to stop at a red light on on a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing on Twyford High Street, all on April 28.

He admitted the three offences. A charge of driving without due care and attention was dropped by the prosecutors.

Magistrates in Basingstoke on Thursday July 7 imposed a community order for Taylor to do 80 hours unpaid work, £85 costs and a £95 victim surcharge. Six penalty points were added to his licence.
