MAGISTRATES have fined a man £220 after he was caught driving a Ford Focus on Manchester Road, Salford, on June 16 last year without a licence.

Robert Diogo, aged 31, of Moorfield Chase, Farnworth, did not turn up at Bolton Magistrates’ Court and the case against him was proved in his absence.

In addition to the fine, he was ordered to pay £117 in costs and charges and he was banned from applying for a driving licence for six months.
