EastEnders Star Beats Supercar Road Ban

EastEnders star Richard Blackwood has appeared in court and successfully overturned a ban after his £100,000 eco-friendly supercar was caught speeding on the M6.

The 44 year-old comedian, television presenter and musician, who plays Vincent Hubbard in the BBC soap, was found guilty last month of failing to say who was driving his white BMW i8.

On February 28 Birmingham Magistrates Court fined him £660, with £80 costs and ordered him to pay a £66 victim surcharge.

He was also disqualified from driving for six months after the vehicle was caught on camera on August 7, last year.

Blackwood, of Cavendish Road, Colliers Wood appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates Court to swear on oath he was unaware of the prosecution.

It will now be heard again on April 4 at Birmingham Magistrates Court.
