Former Clarets striker Ade Akinbiyi has been fined for driving an uninsured car filled with too many passengers.

Akinbiyi (40), who is now player coach at Colwyn Bay, was caught driving five adults and a child inside an Audi A5 on the A55 in north Wales.

The former Leicester City and Burnley front man was convicted of carrying passengers in a manner likely to cause danger and having no insurance.

Flintshire magistrates fined him £1,000 with £145 costs and six points were put on his driving licence.

Akinbiyi, of Dutton, Warrington, did not attend the hearing in Mold, but magistrates were told he was stopped on October 25th last year near Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire.

There were four other adults and a child in the Audi A5.
