A MAN caught walking down a Hampshire motorway has been slapped with a fine.

Kyle Thomas Johnson was caught on the westbound carriageway of the M27 at junction 7 near Hedge End on September 19.

The 26-year-old was on foot while walking on the motorway while he was not a class of traffic authorised to use that road.

Appearing at Southampton Magistrates' Court, he pleaded guilty to walking on a special road on foot while not authorised to do so.

Johnson, of Oakshott Drive, Havant, was fined £100.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34 and court costs of £85.
