A MAN from Bournemouth has received a court bill of almost £400 for travelling on a train in London without paying the £62.30 fare.

Shavaughn Quavar, aged 23, was alleged to have travelled on the First South Western railway service at London Waterloo on December 20, 2021, without having previously paid the fare and with intent to avoid payment.

The offence, which was taken to court by the train franchise, was proved in his absence at a Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court hearing on Tuesday, May 10.

Quavar, whose address was given as Ensbury Park Road, Bournemouth, was fined £220.

He was also ordered to pay £62.30 compensation and £100 costs.
