A Gilford woman was fined £200 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving without insurance on July 16 last year.

Joanne Marie Potts (42), Pine View Court, Gilford, also received six points and was ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard she was stopped at a vehicle checkpoint on the Stramore Road. There had been an amendment to the insurance policy and she was no longer covered for the car she was driving.

A solicitor for the defendant said there was a policy of insurance in place in regard to another vehicle.
