A driver who posed as his brother after being stopped by police near Biggin Hill Airport has received a four month suspended jail term for perverting the course of justice.

Billy Lockwood, 25, of Fairchilds Avenue, New Addington, pleaded guilty at Bromley Magistrates Court on March 18 after his vehicle flagged up as being uninsured.

He gave police his brother’s details when officers stopped him in March last year and was issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice in his sibling’s name.

Lockwood was then arrested when he attended Bromley Magistrates Court in October in respect of the fine, which had not been paid, and admitted he lied to police.

As part of his sentence, Lockwood is required to carry out 150 hours community service and pay £300 court costs.
