A Porsche driver has been fined after he nearly crashed into a police car after overtaking another vehicle in Hatfield.

William Walton, 36, admitted failing to comply with the indication given by solid white line road markings.

The court heard how on March 12 at 6.41pm, he drove head-on towards a marked police car having performed an overtake, crossing double solid white lines to do so.

The police car had had to brake hard to avoid a collision at Junction 4 of the A1(M).

Walton, of Waterford, Hertford, did not appear at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on September 26 when his case was heard, but he was fined £307.

He must also pay victim services £30 and costs of £85.

Three penalty points were issued.

In total he will have to pay £422.
