Lisburn DUP councillor Luke Poots on dangerous driving rap

By Brett Campbell

A DUP councillor is due in court today on a charge of dangerous driving.

Luke Poots (28) will appear at Belfast Magistrates Court.

He faces a single charge relating to an incident on December 7 last year.

He is accused of driving a vehicle dangerously on Grosvenor Road in Belfast.

Mr Poots, of Gardners Road, Lisburn, was co-opted onto the former Lisburn City Council in March 2013.

He was then elected to the new Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council a year later.

The DUP said it was "aware of this matter".

It added that it will be "considered by the party officers".

A farmer, Mr Poots chairs Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council's planning committee and sits on its environmental services committee.
