'Day-tripper' caught doing 91mph in north coast area

A LURGAN man told Ballymena Magistrates Court he was shocked when pulled over and heard the speed he had been doing whilst on a "day trip with friends" in the north coast area.

Oran McIntyre (20), of River Glade Manor, was detected doing 91mph in a 60mph zone at Ballybogey Road, Ballymoney, on June 9 this year.

District Judge Peter Magill said it was a "very high speed" and the defendant was given three penalty points and fined £500.
