Drink driver receives fine after Burnham-On-Sea seafront crash

A motorist has been fined and banned from driving for 18 months after flipping over his car on Burnham's seafront last month.

Joshua Tipton-Baker, 20, from Dunbar Close in Highbridge appeared before Taunton Deane Magistrates Court on Wednesday (November 14th), charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

It follows an incident on October 14th when police were called to a car on its roof on The Esplanade in Burnham during the early hours of the morning. Mr Tipton-Baker was later arrested and charged on suspicion of drink driving.

Magistrates fined him £180, plus costs of £80 and a victim surcharge of £20. They also disqualified him from driving for 18 months which will be reduced to 14 months if he completes a safety driving course.
