Fined for speeding

A Gilford man was fined £100 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for a speeding offence.

Twenty two year old Daniel Patrick McCann, of Halls Mill Green, Gilford, was also given three penalty points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard he was travelling at 55mph in a 40mph zone on the Belfast Road, Lurgan, on November 21 last year.

A solicitor for McCann said he had been going to Belfast to collect friends.
