MP banned after driving without insurance

westminster parliament

The report stated that the Labour MP had been stopped by police in Bolton on 10 May for using her mobile phone behind the wheel. When her details were checked it was found she had no insurance.

Her solicitor told Bolton Magistrates' Court on 18 August that the MP believed her insurance had been automatically renwed whereas in fact it had lapsed on 9 April.

The Bolton MP already had nine points on her licence and has now been fined £1,250 plus costs and banned from driving for six months.
