Ballymena Court.

A Larne man who was detected driving without insurance had taken the wheel of his girlfriend’s car after she felt unwell, it was claimed.

Colin Lowes (50), of Coastguard Road, had the offence detected in the Glenarm Road area of the town in April this year.

Defence solicitor Stewart Ballentine said his client thought he was insured to drive the vehicle.

At Ballymena Magistrates Court on November 22 the defendant was given six penalty points and fined £200.
