A BRADFORD man has been fined more than £600 for failing to provide police with the identity of a driver who was alleged to have committed an offence in Wales.

Usama Shafiq, 35, of Alpine Rise in Thornton was found guilty of not complying with a police request on June 15 this year.

The case was heard at Llanelli Magistrates' Court first on October 27.

He faced another charge for speeding on that date, but the offence was withdrawn.

Shafiq did not attend, but he was proved guilty of failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver/rider of a vehicle when required by single justice procedure.

The case was then adjourned until yesterday (November 24) for a single justice procedure disqualification notice.

Shafiq also did not attend this hearing and it was on that date he was sentenced.

It is in relation to a request made in Pontypridd in South Wales by, or on behalf of, the Chief Officer of Police for Dyfed Powys.

The request was for information from Shafiq relating to the identification of the driver of a Toyota Auris Hybrid, who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence.

Shafiq was ordered by the court to pay £816 in total.

This includes a £660 fine, a £66 surcharge to fund victim services and costs of £90.

The balance must be paid by December 22.

Shafiq was also disqualified from driving for six months.
