Capital FM breakfast presenter Johnny Vaughan has been fined for using his mobile phone whilst driving. And because his children were sick, he missed his hearing at Richmond Magistrates' Court .
A local newspaper reports Vaughan phoned to apologise for not showing up and explained his children were poorly and he would be willing to appear at a later date or be dealt with without being there, entering a guilty plea.
Vaughn pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay a £120 fine, £70 in court costs and a £15 surcharge.
He was caught using his phone in Kensington.
