Speeding hotelier avoids road ban
2:50pm Monday 12th November 2012 in News
HOTEL owner Linton Penman, of Prince Edwards Close, Evesham, admitted speeding when he appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court and got three penalty points bringing his total to 12.
He was recorded doing 35mph on the A4184 Cheltenham Road.
He avoided losing his licence after saying it would leave himself and 36 people employed at Fishmore Hall Hotel, Ludlow, in a position of exceptional hardship.
He was ordered to pay £100 fine, £60 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
