A MOTORIST has been fined after pleading guilty to three separate driving offences.

Joe Brown (25) of Moorland Avenue, Haltwhistle, appeared at Gateshead Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

He admitted to driving a car without a licence and without insurance in February and had already admitted a further charge of driving a motorbike with no licence in March.

Brown was fined £162, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30 and costs of £85. He was given six points on his licence for driving without insurance and received no separate penalty for the two other charges.
