Have your say

CLAIMING to be a pensioner to get cheaper car insurance landed a 21-year-old man before magistrates on Monday.

Byron Hayes-Fowler, of Westry Close in Barrowby, appeared via video link to face 27 charges. They include 14 counts of fraud by false representation, seven counts of using an insurance document with intent to deceive, five counts of using a vehicle without insurance, and one count of obstructing a constable.

The charges date from December 2010 to February 2012.

Magistrates decided the charges were too serious for them to deal with and so the case will be heard at Lincoln Crown Court on September 3.
