Enter a plea online is being launched by the government

From Monday, those charged with a minor motoring offence such as speeding or not having insurance can enter a plea 24 hours a day via a secure website.

The national roll-out of the online "Make A Plea" scheme follows a successful pilot in Greater Manchester.

The Government says it saves time and money for the criminal justice system.

Last year saw 4.5m minor motoring offences processed through the courts.

The government is also considering whether the scheme could be used for other low-level offences.
