Katie Price disqualified from driving

Katie Price was disqualified from driving today after she received three further points on her licence for speeding, a court heard.







The glamour model was caught by a speed camera doing 83mph along the A23 at Pyecombe in West Sussex on December 10 last year.



Price did not attend Crawley Magistrates' Court for the hearing but pleaded guilty to the charge in her absence.



Her lawyer, Robin Sellers, told the court she 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.



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 for six months, Price, of Lunghurst Road, Woldingham, Surrey, was ordered to pay a £1,000 fine and £100 costs.







Price's spokesman said: "Katie accepts that whilst attempting to distance herself from paparazzi who were pursuing her (and about whose actions she had just notified the police) she was guilty of speeding.



"Despite the circumstances of her speeding Katie did not feel it was an appropriate use of the courts time to dispute this matter and thus accepts responsibility for her actions.



"Katie would like to thank the magistrates for the manner with which they have dealt with this matter and will raise her concerns about the behaviour of a small section of the paparazzi with the appropriate bodies."
