The accident happened around 5.45pm on September 1 last year, Spinks was driving a Ford Mondeo when she pulled forward into a parking space and struck the other car, prosecutor Penny Cannon told city magistrates.

Spinks said: "I do take full responsibility for my actions. My licence had expired because I only get my licence for 18 months at a time, because of my epilepsy. I thought I was covered by a friend's insurance."

Spinks was fined �100, six points were endorsed on her licence, and she must pay �35 costs and a �15 surcharge.
