A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Premier League footballer Steven Pienaar after he failed to appear at an Essex court.

Mr Pienaar, 30, was due to attend Chelmsford Magistrates' court on Monday to face two allegations of speeding on the same road in Essex, 11 days apart.

The Everton midfielder is also accused of failing to give driver details for his Aston Martin DBS car.

A warrant was issued for his arrest, a court spokesman said.

It is claimed Mr Pienaar was caught travelling at 43mph in a 30mph zone in Lambourne Road, Chigwell, on 10 October last year.

Mr Pienaar also faces an allegation he was travelling at 38 mph along the same road on 21 October.

The South Africa international joined former club Everton on loan from Tottenham in January.
