R driver caught speeding on way home from work is fined 'week's wages'

AN 'R' driver whose speed was restricted to 45mph was caught doing 82mph in an Astra on the Crankill Road dual-carriageway near Ballymena.

Nigel Linton (21), of Woodend Park, Articlave, was going home from work on April 23 when his speed "crept up", a defence lawyer told Ballymena Magistrates Court.

Deputy District Judge Anne Marshall fined the joiner "a week's wage" - £250 - and also imposed three penalty points.
