Steve McFadden to pay £580 as he gains five points on his licence
EASTENDERS star Steve McFadden will have to shell out £580 and had five points put on his driving licence for speeding on his moped.
The actor, 63, who plays hard man Phil Mitchell in the long-running BBC One soap, was caught driving the scooter at 35mph in a 20mph zone in North London on October 7 last year.
His case was held at Bromley Magistrates’ Court in what is called a Special Judicial Procedure on Thursday afternoon.
He did not have to attend the hearing which was held behind closed doors due to previously pleading guilty.
The details were released by the court on request.
The SJP result said that on October 7 in London, NW3 drove a Piaggio moped at a “speed exceeding 20 miles per hour in contravention of a Local traffic Order” and “Contrary to the above Local Traffic Order and sections 84 and 89(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.”
The actor was pulled over by a police officer with a mobile speed gun as he drove the bike through London.
