A MOTORIST received a fine and three points on his licence after being seen doing doughnuts around a roundabout in Christchurch.

Police stopped a car on the Lyndhurst Roundabout yesterday afternoon after commuters notified the authorities of the car user's anti-social driving.

Officers have condemned the driver’s actions on November 29, saying careless driving “puts other road-users at unnecessary risk”.

A spokesman from Christchurch Police said: “Following reports of anti-social driving on the Christchurch Bypass, a vehicle was stopped after being witnessed performing doughnuts on Lyndhurst Roundabout.

“Driving in this manner is reckless and puts other road-users at unnecessary risk.

“The driver received a £100 fine and three points on his licence.”
