A MOTORIST who crashed his van into a front garden in Bury has been fined by magistrates.

Andrew Lloyd, 24, was behind the wheel of a Citroen Berlingo vehicle during the collision in Rochdale Old Road, the Manchester court was told.

The van demolished the front wall and handrails outside two properties.

Lloyd, of Walnut Avenue, Bury admitted to driving without due care, failing to stop after an accident, having no driving licence and having no insurance. He was fined £200 with £85 court costs.
