A driver has been jailed after he was found to be using the identities of two dead children to avoid speeding fines.
Vehicles registered to Chinedu Ebili were caught speeding on seven occasions between January 2016 and 1 January 2018.
Ebili gave details of five different individuals, including two children who had died 20 years earlier.
He sent the names of people from Austria and Nigeria to police when asked for the identities of the driver.
Officers found two of the people were children who died in 1997 and 1998, one of whom was only a week old.
After being interviewed by police Ebili admitted he was the driver on all but one of the seven occasions.
He was jailed for 15 months at Basildon Crown Court.
