A SALVATION Army member and Smith’s Wood Sports College mentor has been given six points on his licence for driving to work at nearly 80 mph.

Dean Heeley, of Navigation Street, Birmingham, put the speed he was driving - 79 mph on a 50 mph road - down to ‘work pressures.’

The 27-year-old was caught speeding on the A452 Collector Road, just after 8am on July 20. He pleaded guilty at Solihull Magistrates Court on Monday to exceeding the speed limit.

He was also fined £195 and told to pay £80 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
