An Audi driver who was caught speeding in a Bucks village has been given a hefty fine but avoided a driving ban.

Mark Bishop, aged 58, was caught breaking the 30mph speed limit in Amersham Road, Little Chalfont, on January 8 this year.

He was recorded by a speed camera travelling at 38mph.

At a hearing at Wycombe Magistrates' Court on July 5, Bishop was found guilty of speeding via a single justice procedure.

After receiving three points on his licence, Bishop had been due to receive a driving ban after accumulating at least 12 points in the last three years.

However, in mitigation, the magistrate was told that Bishop would lose his two jobs and struggle to support his family if he was disqualified from driving.

Finding that exceptional hardship would occur if he was banned, the magistrate allowed Bishop to keep his licence.

The Audi driver, of Holywell Hill in St Albans, was still fined £347 and told to pay £145 in costs.
