In essence it is alleged that White has been caught speeding while driving in Prestatyn and has perverted the course of justice by passing on the penalty points to a friend.

A police source is quoted as saying:

“A car belonging to Jimmy White was caught on camera speeding and he was sent a ticket. But when the fine was paid a 60-year-old man claimed that he had been driving.

“As a result of investigations a warrant was issued for their arrest and both were questioned.”

“A 47-year-old man and a 60-year-old man were arrested on August 4 on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

“Both men, the 47-year-old from Surrey and the 60-year-old from Jersey, have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.”
