Magistrates heard the offence took place in Bristol on November 6 last year.

Coombs, of Head Street, Pershore, was found guilty under the Single Justice Procedure, which allows magistrates to prosecute without a defendant being present.

Coombs was given six penalty points. He was fined £660, and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £66 and costs of £90.

Coombs has until July 25 to pay the total, £816, in full.
