A MAN from Ringwood has been fined by the courts for speeding in a 20mph zone in central London.

Samuel White, aged 28, was alleged to have driven a Mercedes on Victoria Embankment west of Temple Place in Westminster at 28mph on September 6, 2021.

The case against him was dealt with through the single justice procedure, with a lone magistrate sitting behind closed doors at Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court on March 21.

The offence, which involved him being caught on camera, was found to be proved by the magistrate with the defendant not present at court.

White, whose address was given as Northfield Road, Ringwood, was fined £220 and ordered to pay £34 surcharge and £90 costs.

His driving record was endorsed with three points.
