You might see a rather angry man in patterned golfing knitwear adopting more modest transport around Sussex than usual, I fear: namely Steve Coogan, taking Shanks’s pony. For late last month the comedian was fined and banned from driving after doing 54mph in a 30mph zone.
The Alan Partridge old stager was caught in his £25,000 Mazda MX-5 last October. The car buff did not appear before Worthing magistrates, but his brief admitted his blip.
He was banned for a month and fined £670, with £85 in costs, and road safety charities have said the predictable things.
Does Coogan have previous? Apparently not. He was charged in 2012 for allegedly doing 39mph in a 30mph zone in his Range Rover in Hove, but was later cleared.
