A motorist was fined £265 and banned from driving for two months at East Tyrone Magistrates Court, sitting in Dungannon on Friday.

Sean Hughes (31), of Dernmore Drive, Coalisland, admitted a charge of having no insurance on March 6.

Prosecuting counsel told the court police on mobile patrol at King’s Row, Coalisland, observed a vehicle being driven by a male and a check showed it was insured for a female.

Pair were refused bail.

He said the defendant was stopped and produced his licence to police but had no insurance.

Admitting the offence defence lawyer stressed Hughes had immediately addressed the issue and was now a named person on his mother’s insurance policy.
