David Beckham banned from driving for six months

David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months.

The former England captain, 43, was ordered to pay a £750 fine after admitting using his phone while driving.

The father-of-four was given six points on his driving licence and banned from the roads after appearing at Bromley Magistrates Court.

He was caught on his mobile in a £100,000 Bentley in central London last November.

Scotland Yard previously said the father-of-four had pleaded guilty by post.

Driving while using a mobile phone in England and Wales can carry a disqualification penalty as well as a maximum fine of £1,000.

The offence usually results in six points on a licence.

What does the law say?

In Malta, as in the UK, it is illegal in most situations to use a hand-held mobile phone while driving a car.

These rules apply even while stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic.

Motorists can only use a hand-held device if their car is safely parked in an appropriate location.
