Steve Coogan could face driving ban

Comedian Steve Coogan will stand trial today over a speeding offence which could see him banned from the road.

The 46-year-old is accused of failing to tell police who was driving his car when it was caught doing more than 30mph in Kingsway, Hove, East Sussex, last year.

In May, Coogan, who lives in Ovingdean, Brighton, entered not guilty pleas through his solicitor Andrew Bishop to speeding and failing to notify police who was driving his Range Rover.

If convicted, he could receive six points on his licence, which is expected to take him over the 12-point threshold for disqualification.
