Former James Bond villain Steven Berkoff, who lives in Limehouse, has been banned from driving after jumping a red light.

The actor, who starred in Octopussy, was also slapped with a £300 fine and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £30 victim surcharge by the City of London Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Monday, February 18).

He pleaded guilty to failing to comply with traffic signals in Upper Thames Street in central London on October 25.

The star, who lives in Narrow Street, received three points on his licence – adding to the nine he already had, which resulted in an automatic disqualification from driving.
