Moped-riding teenager fined in Cromer
A 16-year-old boy was fined for riding a moped through Cromer without a licence or insurance.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Cromer Magistrates Court with his father this morning and pleaded guilty to both charges.
On December 19 he was caught by police riding a moped on Holt Road in Cromer without insurance or the proper licence at 9.45pm.
James Burrows, mitigating, said: 'He was in the process of purchasing a moped from somebody and took the rather foolish decision to test it out on the road.
'His parents had no idea what he was doing at that time.'

Chair of the magistrates, Dr Thirst, said: 'It was a bit of a silly thing to do' and added that up to six points would be put on his licence, putting him in danger of losing his car licence when he got it.
'If you sneeze in the wrong direction the DVLA are going to take your licence away,' he said.
