A 36-year-old Awre motorcyclist who crossed solid white lines on the A48 at Chaxhill has been ordered to pay fines and costs totalling £253.

Magistrates at Cheltenham also endorsed Daniel Paxton’s driving licence with three penalty points.

Paxton, of Bradley Hill, Awre, had admitted that on May 14 this year while riding a Honda 1100 motorcycle he failed to comply with the solid white line road markings at the junction with Oakle Street.
