EASTENDERS’ Steve McFadden has been accused of speeding and cutting through traffic in London, a court has heard.
The actor, 62, who plays Phil Mitchell in the BBC soap has been accused of speeding on his Vespa scooter while cutting through traffic in Hampstead.
He was apparently driving at 35mph in the 20mph zone on October 7 last year.
“I was stationary on Fitzjohns Avenue at the junction with Nutley Terrace when I saw a blue Piaggio Vespa travelling along”, said PC Jonathan Steinhof, who stopped McFadden just before midday on the residential road.
“The vehicle was overtaking other vehicles that appeared to be doing the speed limit.
“There is a video evidence relating to this incident.”
