A Colchester driver has been fined £240 after colliding with two parked cars and rolling his vehicle in Sudbury.

Benjamin Ayres, 23, of River Bank Walk, pleaded guilty at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court yesterday to driving without due care and attention, driving without insurance and driving otherwise in accordance with a licence.

Prosecuting, Neil Carr said Ayres was driving a Ford Fiesta on the B1115 Waldingfield Road in Sudbury on August 28 when he lost control of the car and collided with two parked vehicles.

He then crashed into a brick wall and rolled it onto its roof.

Mr Carr said Ayres’ provisional licence had expired at the time of the crash.

In mitigation, Ayres said he was driving his friend’s car and didn’t realise his licence had expired.

Ayres was fined a total of £240, made to pay costs of £100, a victim surcharge of £30.
