A missed bank payment meant that a 33-year-old man was driving without insurance on August 24 this year.

Thomas Joseph Barry, Millar Park, Lawrencetown, was fined £200 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving without insurance.

He was also given six points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The offence happened on the Banbridge Road, Gilford.

A barrister representing the defendant said there wasn’t enough money in the account to cover the direct debit payment.

He added that his client got insurance the next day.
