THE boss of Rockwater Hove has been fined for speeding in his Mercedes on the seafront.

Luke Davis, 42, from Langdale Road, Hove, was caught in his Mercedes going over the 30mph speed limit on the A259 Brighton Road in Shoreham in January.

The offence was found proven and he was fined £220, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34 and costs of £90.

Mr Davis was also given three points on his licence following the hearing in Brighton Magistrates’ Court last month.

After the case, The Argus approached Mr Davis who was unable for comment because he was driving.

Rockwater is the transformation of the previously dilapidated site of The Venue on Hove seafront.

About £6 million has been invested into the venue, which now features a rooftop terrace and provides jobs to 230 people.
