British actor Ray Winstone has been handed a $340 (£200) fine for illegally driving his car in a bus lane.

The Departed star was caught breaking the rules by police officers in Essex, England at the end of last year (13).

Under U.K. law, only buses are allowed to use the lane unless signs state otherwise.

At Chelmsford Magistrates Court in England last week (ends10Aug14), Winstone pleaded guilty and was handed the $340 fine. He was also ordered to pay $153 (£90) costs and a $34 (£20) victim surcharge.
