A RANGE Rover driver has been ordered to pay hundreds of pounds after she was caught driving without due care and attention on a busy Herefordshire main road.

Ida Freeman entered a guilty plea to one charge of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or in a public place without due care and attention when she appeared before magistrates in Worcester in November.

The court heard from police prosecutor David Whittaker that the 43-year-old had been caught driving a Range Rover without due care and attention on the A465 in Hereford on April 24.

Freeman, who is of Berrow, near Malvern, was fined £877 for the offence and received six penalty points, with magistrates saying they had taken her guilty plea into account when imposing the penalty.

She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and an £88 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
