The court heard that the 26-year-old had failed to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a BMW who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence to police in Chepstow on October 28, 2021.

Henderson, of Sycamore Close in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, was fined £800 and disqualified from driving for six months, with magistrates saying a ban was obligatory due to repeat offending.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £620 and an £80 victim surcharge.
