David Beckham banned from driving for six months after using mobile phone whilst driving Bentley through West End


David Beckham has been disqualified for six months after receiving six points for driving his Bentley while using a mobile phone in London’s West End.

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

He appeared in person at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, wearing a dark grey suit.  

His case was considered at the same court last month through an administrative process known as a single justice procedure, which is not open to the press or public.

The procedure was introduced across England and Wales in 2015 as a means of freeing up court time by allowing magistrates to quickly deal with low-level offences which do not warrant prison sentences.

But the hearing was adjourned to the same court on Thursday “to show cause”.

A member of court staff, speaking after the last hearing, said: “The magistrates requested more information – either the circumstances in which it happened or they think they don’t have enough information about the charge to make an informed decision.”
