A WREXHAM mum was caught by police after getting behind the wheel before her driving ban was completed, a court heard.

Mica Floyd, of Trofryn in Penycae, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old admitted that on July 7 in Johnstown, she drove a BMW motor vehicle whilst disqualified and without insurance.

Justin Espie, prosecuting, told the court that at around 3pm on the day of the offence, police received information about a potentially disqualified driver behind the wheel.

The BMW was stopped on High Street in Johnstown and Floyd exited, making immediate admissions that she was disqualified.

Andrew Holiday, defending, conceded that his client had "taken a chance" just ten days before her ongoing ban was due to end.

He said other than getting behind the wheel early, the single mum and part time university student had done everything she had needed to with regards to the ban, which has since lapsed.

District Judge Gwyn Jones handed down six penalty points and ordered the defendant to pay a £225 fine for driving whilst disqualified, as well as a £120 fine for having no insurance.

She must also pay 85 costs.
