A MAN has been found guilty of driving without due care and attention after using intimidating behaviour towards an police staff worker in Epping Upland.

Daniel Rundle, 31, of Markwell Wood, Harlow, was fined £462, ordered to pay £520 in cost and £100 in compensation and received five points on his licence at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Friday, April 20.

At around 1.20pm on Friday, July 21, 2017, a Roads Casualty Reduction was in Epping Road carrying out research when Rundle pulled up next to her.

He then shouted abuse, deliberately parked in front of her to block her view and then reversed towards her, narrowly missing her legs by inches.

Our staff member was so intimidated and concerned for her safety that she left and reported the incident.

Rundle was summonsed to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, November 15, where he pleaded not guilty.

Adam Pipe, head of roads policing, said: “Rundle went out of his way to intimidate a police staff officer who was simply doing her job – helping to make Essex a safer place to live and drive.

“He used his aggression and his vehicle to threaten an experienced and hardworking member of the team.

“Rundle told the court that he only pulled over because he felt unwell and needed a drink to avoid having an accident, fortunately the court saw through his lies and he has since been convicted.”
