An Aberystwyth man has been banned from the road by magistrates for six months due to repeat offending after pleading guilty to driving while using a mobile phone.

Konnor Bill Furness, of 2G Gerddi Gwalia, Portland Road, appeared before Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on 21 March.

The 27-year-old was caught using a mobile phone while driving a Vauxhall Vivaro in Waunfawr, Aberystwyth on 31 July last year.

Magistrates endorsed Furness’ driving licence with six penalty points, leading to a disqualification from driving for six months “due to repeat offending.”

Magistrates also fined Furness £113.

He must also pay costs to the Crown Prosecution Service of £90 as well as a surcharge to fund victim services of £45.
