Lorry Watch – further prosecution
We had another successful Lorry Watch prosecution last week. Eddie Stobart Ltd pleaded guilty to two offences after breaching the 18 tonne weight restriction on Bradford on Avon Town Bridge on two separate occasions with 44 tonne vehicles. The company had already been warned following other illegal crossings of the bridge. The company were ordered to pay £1500 (£750 for each offence) plus £75 costs to Wiltshire Council and a £15 victim surcharge – total £1590.
