Girls aloud star Sarah Harding was caught by police on the 4th April talking on her phone whilst driving her Range Rover and has been issued a six month driving ban.
After receiving three points for this offence, she had racked up a total of 12 points for three previous speeding tickets.
Harding’s Defence lawyer Nick Freeman argued that she should not be forced to use public transport however, District Judge Nina Tempia said: “…he is asking the court to deal with you as opposed to a normal person. Well, you are a normal person. I can see no reason why you shouldn’t be disqualified.”
After the hearing Sarah admitted that her offence was not acceptable and said: “I made a mistake by using my phone whilst driving, but I was lucky. I accept the court’s penalty but it could have been a lot worse. I have learned my lesson.”
