A YOUNG woman was caught driving an uninsured car along a footpath in Meon Vale which was being used by children.
Police were called to the area on Sunday (December 11) to reports of a Renault Clio being driven erratically around the estate.
After speaking to residents and checking CCTV they discovered the car parked nearby and a woman from Lower Quinton was identified as the driver.
She could now lose her licence after only passing her test at the start of the year.
A police spokesman said: “With the driver only passing her test at the beginning of 2016 the ‘New Driver Rules’ will be of concern to her – a driving licence will be revoked if you get six or more points within two years of passing your test.
“The offence of driving without valid insurance carries a six point penalty with £300 fine.”
