• A Yorkshire-based owner-driver was fined £40 and given three penalty points after Ashford magistrates found him guilty of using a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

Ray Fry was stopped by police in October 1995 at J8 on the M20 and told his fifth wheel wasn't secured properly. Police said they could see From their car the plunger on Fry's fifth wheel was sticking up and not properly locked and it didn't hove a dog clip. The police found the plunger was rusty and seized. Fry, who represented himself, believes the plunger was secure and says the type of fifth wheel on his 38-tanner didn't need a dog clip. He challenged the police's claim they could see the plunger was not secure from their car.

Fry says he will appeal against the decision.
