A motorist, who drove through a red light and failed to stop for police, has had his case heard at Craigavon Courthouse.

Conor Moore, (27), of Skeltons Rampart, Craigavon, was heard at the sitting on Wednesday, January 5.

The court heard that on May 30 last year, mobile patrol officers on Union Street, Lurgan, saw the defendant approach the junction at Millenium Way at speed, and after the car slowed down and turned off the lights, it then breached a red light and drove off.

In his defence, the court was told that Moore had no previous convictions and that he accepts speeding off as he “panicked” and that he owns a cleaning firm.

District Judge Greg McCourt imposed a £130 fine and four penalty points for breaching a traffic sign, as well as a £150 fine for failing to stop for police.
