Man in court in connection with his ‘pride and joy’ first car

Ballymena Court

A DEFENCE solicitor for a Ballymena man detected without insurance for a Volkswagen Golf said the car was the defendant’s first vehicle and was his “pride and joy”.

Lawyer Stewart Ballentine told Ballymena Magistrates Court Reece Blair (19), of Shanowen, had “inadvertently overlooked” the insurance renewal.

The defendant was given six penalty points and fined £200.
