A cyclist has been fined £700 after going through a red light.

Richard Hodgson, 53, of Maldon Road, Brighton, was found guilty of ignoring a red traffic light, cycling without lights, cycling on the pavement and failing to stop for police.

Brighton magistrates fined him £700 and ordered him to pay £215 in costs.

Inspector James Biggs, of the Sussex Police road policing unit at Hove, said: "Our communities in Brighton and Hove are regularly raising concerns about anti-social cycling, where cyclists are cycling on pavements, having no regard for red traffic lights and cycling without lights at night.

"This behaviour puts both the cyclists and other road users at risk and we will respond robustly to anyone found committing such offences."
