Southend United captain Anton Ferdinand has been banned from driving after he was caught speeding.

Magistrates heard it was the 32-year-old's fourth speeding offence within three years, meaning he had totted up 12 penalty points on his licence.

Ferdinand, who has a two-year contract with League One Southend, was caught doing 38mph (61kmh) in a 30mph (48kmh) road in Billericay, Essex.

He was banned from driving for six months and fined £350.

Ferdinand was not present for the hearing on Tuesday before Basildon magistrates, who were told he earned £690 per week from Southend United.
