BRADFORD based Morrisons has been fined more than £500 for failing to provide police with the identity of a driver who was alleged to have committed an offence.

The supermarket chain, which is based in Hilmore House, off Gain Lane in Bradford, pleaded guilty to not complying with a police request on November 5, last year.

The case was heard at Bath Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, April 27.

It related to a request made by the Speed Enforcement Unit in Bristol, on behalf of the Chief Officer of Police for Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

The request was for information from Morrison's relating to the identification of the driver of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence.

Morrisons was ordered by the court to pay £726 in total.

This includes a £560 fine, a £56 surcharge to fund victim services and costs of £110.

The balance must be paid by next Tuesday (May 11).

Morrisons was approached for comment but did not provide a response in time.
