Man faces trial for blowing nose

A MAN is facing a criminal trial after he was caught blowing his nose behind the wheel of his car.

Michael Mancini was given a 60 fixed penalty notice after a policeman decided he was "not in control of his vehicle" when he wiped his nose with a tissue. But he said last night that he had "made sure it was safe" to blow his nose before taking his hands off the wheel.

Mr Mancini, 39, from Ayr, said he was in stationary traffic and had put his handbrake on when he committed the alleged offence in October last year.

He refused to pay the fine and now faces a trial later this year.
