Afraz Rashid, 27, from Victoria Road, Barking, also admitted driving without a valid full license. He was fined a total of £195, and told to pay £43 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

He was with a passenger, who was the owner of the car and had insurance and a full license, when he was stopped on June 6.

Rashid told Magistrates he offered to take over driving because his friend began feeling unwell when he was at the wheel.
