Driving ban for Chris Tarrant's ex-wife Ingrid

Monday February 15, 2010

Chis Tarrant's ex-wife has been banned from driving for six months.

Last week, Ingrid - who has previously escaped a driving ban by pleading poverty - appeared in court for her fourth motoring offence in three years.

A judge dismissed claims by the 55-year-old - who was awarded a £12.5 million divorce settlement - that she was "asset rich but penny poor" and would be unable to pay for taxis if she lost her driving licence.

Ingrid also said a ban would force her to walk more, aggravating a knee injury she had suffered for several years.

"I'm not a cripple but I need to be careful," she said.

As well as her six month ban, she has been fined £250 and told to pay £58 costs.
