AN epilepsy sufferer who collided with a vehicle in the Tesco car park in Ely has admitted careless driving.

Catherine Spinks, 26, had no insurance cover when she damaged a Mazda vehicle, and has also admitted driving without a licence.

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.
