Jim Davidson appeared at Southampton Crown Court today as he attempted to reverse the decision of a 12-month driving ban for speeding.
He appealed the ban, which was given at Aldershot Magistrates Court in February, with an exceptional hardship plea.
Jim represented himself in court as his barrister was stuck in another trial and the court refused to adjourn the hearing.
Judge Peter Henry praised Jim for his presentation and accepted that there was some exceptional hardship but not enough to overturn the ban completely. He reduced the ban to six months.
Following the decision, Jim had to leave his car outside the court and walk two miles in blistering heat…and is now downing his third pint of lager…
