EastEnders star's driving ban overturned as 'people recognise him on public transport'
EastEnders actor Jamie Borthwick has had his driving ban overturned after making an appeal on Thursday (March 3).The actor, best known for playing Jay Brown in the BBC soap, was originally handed a six-month driving ban and six penalty points on his driving license at Romford Magistrates’ Court on January 31.Croydon Nightingale Court then heard that as the actor already had six points, he was handed the driving ban.He was also fined £660 and made to pay a further £166 in court costs, The Mirror reports.But now that ban has been reduced to two months as the star claimed he would be “recognised on public transport” - and has to ferry his great uncle and aunt to their hospital appointments.The actor was originally having to arrange alternate transport to take him to work at BBC Studios after being clocked speeding in his Mercedes at 52mph in a 30mph zone in Romford.Borthwick admitted to speeding at a Single Justice Procedure on December 1 last year.At the actor’s appeal, his lawyers explained that the great aunt and uncle he takes to appointments are “like grandparents to him”.His lawyer Alex Owen told the court: “The circumstances of this offence are the road is a dual carriageway which isn’t signposted at 30mph limit but of course the presence of street lights indicates that. He was unaware of that at the time, he was wrongly under the impression it was a 50mph limit.“It took place in the midafternoon and it was relatively quiet at the time.
