A cabbie has been jailed after a speeding ticket scam in which he falsely said other people were the drivers of his car, later found to be a taxi.

Stephen Foster-Dight, 57, of Marlow Bottom, Marlow, was caught speeding in the Oxford area by cameras three times in November and December 2012.

When he was sent notices, he replied to police, but provided details of a man in America for two of the offences and his wife for the other. He admitted perverting the course of justice and was jailed for six months at Oxford Crown Court and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
