While driving a van a 50-year-old man used his mobile phone and was seen by police who were travelling in the opposite direction.

Nigel Thomas Swift, whose address was given as Burren Close, Lurgan, was fined £60 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for using a hand held phone while driving.

He was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that on April 22 last year at Main Street, Waringstown, police saw a van coming in the opposite direction to them and they noticed the driver was using a mobile phone.

They pulled the van in and Swift admitted driving while using the phone.

The defendant appeared in court himself and pleaded guilty.
