Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on December 31 how Leon Morris, 26, of St Augustine’s Road, Chesterfield, was caught by a camera driving at 36mph in a 30mph zone on April 2, 2018, in a Citroen Berlingo.

Morris was served with a notice about the offence asking him to identify the driver involved, according to the court, and there was no response.

The court also heard that Morris is currently disqualified from driving but the April speeding offence pre-dates this matter.
