AT Bromsgrove Petty Sessions, Thomas Hurley, of Fairfield Road, Bournheath, was charged with driving a trap without a lighted lamp in Birmingham Road, The Whetty. The defendant said the lamp did not give a brilliant light and, as it was a moonlit night, he had not noticed that it had gone out. Hurley was fined 1s and 7s 6d costs.
