Superstar chef Gordon Ramsay has been fined 500 pounds for breaking the speed limit while driving in Cornwall, England. The British restaurant mogul and TV star pleaded guilty to breaking the law by driving his Land Rover at 113 kilometres per hour in an area of road with a 64 kilometres per hour limit.
Ramsay, 49, did not attend the hearing in Bodmin, Cornwall but was given six penalty points, a fine and ordered to pay costs of 85 pounds by magistrates, according to the BBC. The speeding incident occurred on March 23 when the star was travelling on the A30 road, where a temporary speed limit was in place due to work being carried out to expand the road.
The “Hell’s Kitchen” star owns a 4.4 million pounds house in the area, but has outraged locals after gaining permission from local council officials to demolish the property and replace it with two new homes.
Ramsay has received multiple Michelin starts and owns several restaurants around the world. He is also a well-known face in television shows in the UK and the US, including the popular cooking show MasterChef.
