Ramsey woman gets five-year driving ban

Sixty-eight-year-old failed to provide breath sample

A Ramsey woman has been disqualified from driving for five years after failing to provide a breath sample to the police.

Sixty-eight-year-old Anna Fratanu admitted the offence in Douglas courthouse on Tuesday (October 4).

The court heard how witnesses saw her trying to park in a disabled space in Shoprite car park in the town on July 31.

Miss Fratanu was taken to police headquarters but failed to provide a breath sample - the defence saying it was difficult forher to do so following recent botox surgery.

Magistrates imposed the driving ban, fined her £1,000 and ordered her to pay £300 in costs.
