Have your say

MAGISTRATES have fined a teenager for driving without due care and attention.

Ashley Boxhall-Burnet, from Rowan Road, Havant, had denied committing the crime while driving a Ford Fiesta in Northern Road, Portsmouth, on November 6 last year.

But the 19-year-old was found guilty of the charge at Fareham Magistrates’ Court.

Magistrates heard that Boxhall-Burnett swerved the Fiesta in front of a minibus, causing the vehicle to brake hard.

He then kept stopping and starting the car.

He again pulled in front of the minibus at a roundabout before turning right at a junction.

Boxhall-Burnett then tried to get ahead of the minibus again.

However he left the scene when the aggrieved, who has not been named, pulled over and stopped.

He was fined £200 and told to pay £15 to a crime victims’ funds and £150 costs.

Magistrates banned Boxhall-Burnett from driving for six months. Six points were added to his driving licence.
