Driver given court date

A DRIVER who damaged a truck and failed to stop at the scene is to appear again before magistrates.

James Bierton, 59, from Waverley Way, Worksop, admitted to the offence, however, denied he was drunk at the wheel along the A57 on 31st January. The court heard how Mr Bierton was allegedly more than double over the legal limit.

But Mr Grant, defending, said: “We need his brother’s observations to see how much was drank.”

Mr Bierton will appear at Worksop Magistrates Court on the morning of 28th March.
