David Beckham to face court over driving offence

David Beckham will face a full court hearing for driving while using his mobile phone.

The former football star, 43, could face six penalty points and a £200 fine after he admitted the offence in London’s West End.

Beckham admitted using his mobile while driving in Great Portland Street, after being spotted by a member of the public on November 21.

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

The hearing was adjourned to Lavender Hill Magistrates Court on April 17.

A member of court staff said: ‘The magistrates requested more information – either the circumstances in which it happened or they think they don’t have enough information about the charge to make an informed decision.’
