CCTV captured a disqualified and uninsured motorist driving to and from a service station.

Aaron John Connor (28), of Glebe Crescent, Castlerock, was detected in February last year.

A prosecutor said police saw Connor in the driver’s seat of a vehicle at Hillcrest Service Station in Portrush.

Police advised the defendant not to drive.

He said he had not been driving and that a family member would be driving the vehicle away.

As police had not seen the defendant driving they left the scene.

When officers later checked CCTV they noted the defendant had driven to the service station and and shortly after police left he had driven off.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court on February 4, Deputy District Judge Peter Magill said driving whilst disqualified is so serious that quite often it will result in an immediate jail term.

He said he would give the defendant the “benefit of the doubt” as Connor had claimed he was unaware he had been disqualified at the time.

The defendant was banned from driving for six months and fined £200.
