A DRIVER is expected to be left more than £1,000 out of pocket for failing to fill in paperwork following a suspected motoring offence.

Matthew Pegler of Langdale Drive, Warndon, Worcester was ordered to pay out  more than £1,000 in combined court fines and costs at a hearing at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday, May 16.

The 30-year-old was convicted of failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver when required by West Mercia Police.

The incident happened on November 30 last year after Pegler was requested to give information about a driver suspected of an offence. 

He was fined £660, ordered to pay a surcharge of £264 and costs of £90 - £1,014 in total.

A collection order was made which gives the courts additional powers to recover the money.

Pegler's driving record was also endorsed with six penalty points.

The matter was proved under the single justice procedure.
