A man has been fined and banned from driving for a further four months after admitting to driving whilst disqualified and without insurance.

Marian Eftime, 37, of York Road, Birmingham was arrested by police in Harpole on March 24 following reports of suspicious behaviour regarding a blue Renault Master van in the area. The van was additionally seized by officers.

Eftime was subsequently charged with driving while disqualified and without insurance after checks revealed he was issued with a six-month driving ban in Hull in December 2020.
