Speeding man is sentenced

A MAN who was caught driving a transit van at almost 30mph above the speed limit will pay £260.

Christopher Curtin, of Leeds, was clocked doing 89-miles-per-hour on the A64 at Malton, where the limit is 60 miles-per-hour.

At the hearing, held at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court, Curtin, 43, said: “I was going far too fast.”

Six penalty points were also added to his licence.
