Katie Price banned from driving

Katie Price has been banned from driving for six months and fined £1,000 after admitting to speeding.

The glamour model was clocked doing 83mph by a speed camera on the A23 at Pyecombe in West Sussex last December.

A lawyer for Price, who did not attend the hearing at Crawley Magistrates' Court, pleaded guilty to the charge in her absence.

He told the court Price was being pursued by photographers when she was caught speeding along the 70mph road.

He said: "About nine minutes before she was caught she pulled over and in a state of exasperation asked that another enforcement officer could have a word with a couple of members of the paparazzi who were following her."

Deputy District Judge Ken Goldspring replied: "It goes with the territory."

Price, also known as Jordan, now has 13 points on her licence and will more than likely see herself facing a heftycar insurance quote when she next goes to renew after the ban.

Earlier this year she received three points after she was convicted of not being in proper control of her luxury 7.5 tonne pink horsebox.

As well as being banned from driving and fined, Price, of Woldingham, Surrey, was ordered to pay £100 costs.
