Footballer banned for speeding

A Newcastle United defender has been banned from driving for seven weeks and fined £2,000.

Titus Bramble admitted driving at speeds of up to 102mph on a dual carriageway.

He did not appear before magistrates in his home town of Ipswich but was convicted in his absence. He was also ordered to pay £500 in prosecution costs.

Two police officers clocked the 22-year-old in a BMW X5 on the A14 at Sproughton, Suffolk, in January.

He failed to produce a driving licence and was accused of failing to display L plates while driving on a provisional licence.

Barry Warburton, defending Bramble, said he was a man of "substantial disposable income" and accepted that a ban was almost inevitable.

But she said: "The disqualification will cause him considerable hardship and difficulties.

"His family is in Ipswich and he lives in Newcastle. Even a short disqualification will cause him considerable trouble."
