A 54-year-old man was fined £85 last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court, sitting in Newry, for a speeding offence.

Gerard Litter, whose address was given as Ballynamoney Grove, Lurgan, was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard he was detected travelling at 70mph in a 60mph zone on the A1 dual carriageway on September 8 last year.

A fixed penalty was offered in the matter but not taken up.

Litter did not appear in court but pleaded guilty by post.
