Norbert Dentressangle and Wrings Transport have been prosecuted for a second time after breaching a weight restriction in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire.

UPS, DFDS Logistics and GeoPost were one of 13 firms and a driver collectively fined more than £13,000 this summer after breaching the weight restriction on Bradford-on-Avon’s town bridge.
