Nick Cave offered training after speed camera crash
Singer Nick Cave has been offered driver training as an alternative to prosecution after crashing into a seafront speed camera in Brighton
The 53-year-old Australian musician was behind the wheel of a Jaguar saloon when it struck the camera in Queensway on 7 December last year.
The singer and his twin 10-year-old sons, who were also in the car, walked away unharmed from the crash.
Cave, who lives in the area, was not arrested.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: "The driver of a Jaguar saloon car which collided with a roadside speed camera on Hove seafront in December has been offered driver training."
Following the incident, somebody scrawled 'Nick Cave waz ere Xmas 2010' on the speed camera, which belonged to the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership.
The singer is best-known as the frontman of rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and his 1995 Where the Wild Roses Grow duet with Kylie Minogue.
A spokeswoman for Cave refused to comment.
