A 42-YEAR-OLD man from Dudley has been banned from the roads and hit with a court bill of £344 after being caught speeding at Far Forest.

Paul O’Meally, of Watsons Green Road, was disqualified from driving for six months and fined £220 for driving a Mercedes in excess of the 30mph speed limit on the Cleobury Road, Far Forest, Worcestershire, on March 31.

He was also ordered to pay a £34 surcharge to fund victim services and £90 court costs in a case finalised at Hereford Justice Centre on Friday November 26.
