A 57-YEAR-OLD man has been fined more than £300 for careless driving while uninsured.

Michael Barnard, of Thistle Road, Gravesend, admitted running into the back of another car in June while queueing to get onto the A2 near Bluewater.

He told the other driver at the time he was covered but later found out he had forgotten to renew his policy.
