OAP stuck two fingers up at speed camera

OAP FINED £100 FOR V-SIGN
A pensioner who flashed a double V-sign at a speed camera has been fined £100 for not being in control of his vehicle.         

Frank Benson,71, from Selside, Cumbria, made the gesture to a camera in Kendal.

Three weeks earlier the plumber had been fined £60 for doing 44mph in a 40mph zone.         

Mr Benson's son Tom said the two-finger salute was a "spur of the moment reaction" in response to a previous fine.         

He was fined £100 by South Lakeland Magistrates and ordered to pay £35 costs.
