AN ANDOVER man who failed to give police information of a driver who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence has been fined £1,000.

Along with the £1,000 fine, Richardson was ordered to pay a £100 victim surcharge and £100 court costs. His driving licence was also endorsed with six penalty points.

He was found not guilty of a further offence of speeding on the M27.
