DRIVING a Ford Transit van was "a very silly thing to do," 21-year-old Martin Parker admitted to magistrates this week.

Police stopped him in Queensway at Soham on January 26, and discovered he had neither a licence nor insurance for the P-registered vehicle.

"I should not have been doing it," Parker told the court, after explaining that he had never held a licence.

Parker was fined £125 and six points added to his driving record for the insurance offence, and he was fined anther £50 for having no licence. The court ordered him to pay £35 costs.

"This has been a very expensive lesson for you," said presiding magistrate Mary Rone.
