A MOTORIST has had to pay more than £200 after being caught driving without a seat belt near Llandysul.

Marc Owain Warren Thomas, of Penparcau, Aberystwyth, was driving a Vauxhall Vivaro van on the A475 at Penrhiwllan on September 13 last year when he was spotted not wearing a seat belt.

The 31-year-old pleaded guilty when he appeared before magistrates at Aberystwyth Justice Centre and was fined £100 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £30.
