A Barrowby man did not disclose his criminal convictions when he tried to get car insurance.

Byron James Hayes-Fowler, 24, of Westry Close, admitted withholding information to get an insurance certificate on December 6 last year.

Prosecuting, Daniel Paulson said that checks had shown Hayes-Fowler had not disclosed previous offences for which he had been convicted.

Defending, Chris Pye-Smith told the court that Hayes-Fowler thought the convictions had been spent. He said it was a mistake on the defendant’s part. The insurance was cancelled, but the defendant had since been able to take out another insurance policy.

The magistrates fined Hayes-Fowler £260 and ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £26 and costs of £85.
