Have your say

SHOCKED pedestrians looked on as a motorist sped through a red light on the wrong side of the road before crashing into a fence.

Scott Pattinson did not have any insurance or a full driving licence and had refused to pull over for the police before crashing the car, a City Rover.

About 10 people were crossing at the traffic lights in Arundel Street, Landport, when the 24-year-old sped past.

He turned into Cottage View, where he lost control and crashed the car into the garden fence.

Pattinson, of Glidden Close, Landport, Portsmouth, pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention, driving without any insurance or a full licence and failing to stop for the police when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

District Judge Anthony Calloway banned him from driving for two years.

Pattinson was fined £300 and ordered to pay £100 in costs. The judge gave him two weeks to pay off the fine and costs.

No one was hurt in the crash.
