Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A HIGH Court judge was fined £60 for jump­ing a red light and or­dered to pay £5,000 in costs for ‘wast­ing the courts time’ in a year-long bat­tle.

Kuldip Singh QC, 58, ( was caught rac­ing through a cen­tral Lon­don junc­tion at 65mph in Novem­ber 2011.

In­stead of cough­ing up he tried to have the charge thrown out, re­sult­ing in four court hear­ings and his case be­ing listed seven times in 14 months – clock­ing up a £4,769 bill.

His at­tempts to have the case thrown out were a ‘fal­lacy from the start’ and led to au­thor­i­ties be­ing ‘over­whelmed’ with work.

Yes­ter­day he pleaded guilty at West­min­ster Mag­is­trates’ Court to a charge of fail­ing to com­ply with a traf­fic sig­nal.

He was also given three points on his li­cence.
