Speeding Cole cops four month ban and fine

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has been banned from driving for doing more than 100mph in a 50mph zone. The England full-back claimed he was being chased by paparazzi when a speed gun recorded him driving his black Lamborghini Gallardo at 104mph.

Magistrates at Kingston imposed a four-month ban and £1,000 fine. However, Cole's legal team immediately launched a bid against the ban which will be considered later.

He was also ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £300 costs to reflect his income and the seriousness of the offence.

Cole, who was not present, was warned if he did drive while disqualified, he could face prison.

His defence barrister asked for 21 days to pay, which magistrates laughed at but granted.
