A passenger caught in a car that wasn’t insured has been fined £600.

Police stopped a Honda Civic on Bath Road, Buxton, on September 16 and checks revealed neither the car, or driver, were insured.

The car owner, Mohammed Shamsu Miah, 24, of London Road, Stockton Heath, Warrington, denied using a motor vehicle without insurance but failed to attend court for his trial and the offence was proved in his absence.

He was also ordered to pay £160 costs and a £60 surcharge and given six penalty points.
