EX-England star Jack Rodwell had a six-month driving ban overturned yesterday — because he did not know about it.
The Blackburn midfielder, 27, was disqualified in his absence earlier this month over an alleged traffic offence.

But Rodwell, of Prestbury, Cheshire, claimed to be unaware of the hearing as papers were sent to an old address.
Rodwell told Stockport magistrates’ court yesterday that he found out only after they were forwarded to his new home.
The ban — which was imposed as he already had six points on his licence — and a £660 fine were withdrawn.
Rodwell then denied failing to give information about who was driving a Mercedes allegedly involved in an undisclosed offence in June.
