Rider ignored two red lights with young children at junctions

Advocate Lauren Glynn, defending, said that her client accepted that he had been at fault but said that at the time he needed to go to the toilet because of a medical condition.

The angry mother reported the actions of the motorcyclist to the police, and told officers that she was telling her son about the need to wait for the ‘green man’ to appear when the bike was driven through the crossing.
