AN ISLE of Wight woman has been banned from the road for failing to identify the driver of a Ford EcoSport on the mainland.

The case of Diane Pearce, of Field View, Ryde, was heard before Southampton magistrates on Thursday, March 21.

The 68-year-old was found guilty in absence of failing to give information relating to the identification of a driver/rider of a vehicle when required, in Fareham, on January 6 of last year.

The court heard she failed to identify the driver of a Ford EcoSport when that driver was suspected of committing an offence.

Pearce was fined £180 and disqualified from driving for six months.

Her driving record was endorsed with six penalty points, and she was ordered to pay costs of £110 and a £72 surcharge.
