David Beckham lands six months ban for using a phone while driving

After a long wait for judgement, David Beckham has arrived at court to be sentenced for using his mobile phone whilst driving his £100,000 Bentley.

The former footballer previously entered a guilty plea but will learn his fate at Bromley Magistrates’ Court this afternoon.

Wearing a dark grey suit, the footballer got out of a black car and walked past photographers into the court building.

The former England captain was charged last month after a member of the public spotted him on the phone while driving his Bentley.

Beckham, 43, admitted using the device while driving in Great Portland Street, after being spotted by a member of the public on November 21.

His case was originally set to be dealt with at Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court last month but was postponed until today when the star confirmed he would attend.

A court staff member previously said the case was listed on the court system as ‘to attend for disqualification’.

But she added: “Although it is listed as ‘to attend for disqualification’ we don’t know if he has enough points for disqualification.

“We don’t know if he does have enough points to be classed as a totter.”
