Several people in the local area have been caught recently with not MOT or insurance. The following are cases dealt with by local magistrates this week:
CHRISTOPHER GREENWOOD, 51, of Kay Crescent, Bodmin, was spared a totting up disqualification when he was sentenced for having no insurance for a Ford on Kay Crescent, Bodmin on Boxing Day. Magistrates had heard that a ban would have had an adverse effect on his daughter who relies on him for transport to school and after school clubs. His mother also relies on him for appointments and shopping. He was fined £500 and ordered to pay a £50 victim surcharge and £90 costs. Six points were put on his licence.
KAREN RIDLEY, 52, of Morval, Looe, was banned from driving for six months due to repeat offending, fined £440 and ordered to pay a £34 victim surcharge and £90 costs after pleading guilty to having no insurance for a Land Rover at Nomansland, Widegates last October.

DAISY PENROSE, 19, of Churchtown, St Breward, pleaded guilty to driving a VW on Bodmin Moor without insurance.
