A police officer was jailed yesterday for faking papers to dodge a motoring fine.
PC Dean Hardy, 35, feared becoming a laughing stock after being pulled over while driving without an MOT.
He later filled in a form to make it appear the MOT was valid and had it signed at Deeside station, Clwyd.
Jailing him for four months at Newport crown court, Judge Paul Thomas QC said: “If police officers don’t respect the law, how can the general public. People like you simply have to be made an example of.”
