A BOUNCER who got caught using his identical twin's door licence in Nailsea has appeared in court.

Michael Hunt of Mendip Road, Weston, pleaded guilty to breaching the Private Security Industry Act at North Somerset Courthouse in St Georges on Friday.

The 26-year-old was caught by police who turned up to an unnamed nightspot in Nailsea last August to do a check on door licences.

When he was asked to produce proof of his accreditation he showed officers his identical twin's badge.
