A Lurgan woman admitted her fourth no insurance offence when she appeared last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.

Sunday, 7th August 2016, 6:44 am

She was 36-year-old Tina Claire Irwin, Trasna Way, Lurgan.

She admitted driving without due care and attention on March 3 this year, not having a licence, not having insurance and taking a car without the consent of the owner.

Because it was her fourth no insurance conviction District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, ordered a pre-sentence report.

He added that because driving without insurance now carried the possibility of a prison sentence he would need a report before dealing with the matter.

The judge adjourned sentencing until September 2.
