The 34-year-old did plead guilty to failing to give information relating to the identity of the driver or rider of a vehicle when required.

The incident occurred on June 19 this year when the defendant was asked by police for the identification of the driver of a Lamborghini Aventador who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence.

Lambert was given a six month disqualification, after being handed six points for the offence. He already had seven points on his licence.

He was ordered to pay £290 in costs.

Simon Nicholls, defending, said: "Losing his license is going to cause enormous problems but it is not going to cause exceptional hardship."
