The restricted road has a speed limit of 30mph. However, the 61-year-old was driving at 49mph.

Prince was proven guilty via the single justice procedure on May 27 2022 at Bath Magistrates' Court.

He was handed a £214 fine, and ordered to pay £90 in costs and a £34 surcharge, making a total of £338.

His driving record was also endorsed with five penalty points.
