A BMW driver caught out at a Herefordshire police station without a licence or insurance has been fined by magistrates.

Hazel Unitt entered a guilty plea to one count of driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence and one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without third-party insurance to magistrates in Worcester in October.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 34-year-old had been caught out at Leominster's police station after getting behind the wheel of a BMW on April 1.

She did not had a valid insurance policy in place and did not have a licence allowing her to drive that vehicle at the time, magistrates were told.

Unitt, of Honeysuckle Way, Burford, Tenbury Wells, was fined £120 and received six penalty points for the offences, with magistrates saying they had taken her guilty pleas into account when deciding on the penalty.

She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £48 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
