So they let her off with a fine

The estranged wife of TV star Chris Tarrant has escaped a driving ban.

Ingrid Tarrant, 53, told the court that banning her would cause "unfair problems" to her son Toby, 16, as he prepares for his GCSEs.
She held nine points on her licence when she was clocked speeding on the A3 in Hants last September, and was then spotted chatting on her mobile in two separate incidents.

Admitting the offences, Ingrid claimed a ban would prevent her driving Toby to school and would see her charity work suffer.
