He has sent a letter of apology, as he could not show up for the hearing. "I sincerely apologise for not having responded to the original notice of intended prosecution as the initial notice and further correspondence in regard to the speeding offence were delivered to Ealing Studios," the Daily Star quoted him as saying the letter.
He added: "I am, and have been, residing in the United States and therefore have not received or been aware of the information regarding this offence. The Range Rover was registered at the company address and therefore the correspondence was delivered there. I look forward to resolving this matter with the court's assistance and once again apologise for the lapse in correspondence due to the mishandling of address material by the production company at Ealing Studios."
