A MAN has been fined after using his mobile phone while driving.

Frantisek Mader, 55, of Albert Street, Harwich, was found using the device while driving a Honda CR-V at the junction of Garland Road and Station Road, Parkeston, on March 22.

Mader denied the charge, but was found guilty at Colchester Magistrates' Court last week.

He was fined £150, must pay £300 costs and had his driving licence endorsed with six penalty points.
