Dyer banned from driving after speeding conviction

West Ham midfielder Kieron Dyer has been banned from driving for six months after he was caught speeding.

The former England player already had three points on his licence when his Mercedes was clocked travelling at 95mph on a dual carriageway.

Dyer, aged 31, did not attend court for the hearing but was found guilty in his absence of speeding, failing to provide information on the identity of a driver and failing to produce a driving licence.

The player was driving along the A12 at Great Wenham, near Capel St Mary, on the morning of April 3 when he broke the national speed limit, Lowestoft Magistrates’ Court, in Suffolk, heard.

He then failed to name the driver of his vehicle, court documents revealed.

Dyer, of West Bergholt in Colchester, Essex, was fined £1,050 (€1,260) and ordered to pay £1,015 (€1,200) in costs and a £15 (€18) victim surcharge yesterday.

Eleven points were added to his licence, meaning he passed the 12-point threshold that leads to disqualification.
