Van driver used phone

A 20-YEAR-OLD motorist from Snainton has admitted using mobile phone while driving a Ford Transit van.

Jack Cameron Low, of Lairs Crescent, was spotted by a police patrol driving along Seamer Road in May. The officer said he saw Low holding the phone to his ear and was “smiling and talking into it”.

He pleaded guilty by letter and his licence was endorsed with three penalty points. He was fined £60 and ordered to pay £60 in court costs.
