Hi I got a speeding fine a few months ago and I was honest

Customer Question

Hi I got a speeding fine a few months ago and I was honest and put up my hands to the speeding offence, the police sent a fine of £100 and said I will get 3 points, this happened on a two lane dual carriageway which goes to a 40mph. I knew this camera was there as I used this road for over 40 yrs,
I sent all documents and bank details. Some weeks later I get a letter saying the bank refused payment, but on checking my a/c the money was in there plus my bank statement also shows sufficient funds so cannot understand this, in the letter it also states and I quote
Please forward both your licence and payment to my office by 7th November, letter dated 7th January 2014 unquote, so thinking I have a few months to sort this out put it to one side for later, I went away for a couple of weeks and on return I had a court hearing date to attend, so I'm asking advice on the situation as letter says return by 7th November, plus bank refusing payment when fund were more that sufficient.
I have to return court documents by end May 2014
Your input on this strange situation would be grateful, as I have not had a speeding fine for In access of 25yrs and not sure what I should do, I know I have to plead guilty to speeding but after that seems I'd to me
Thank you
