Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding Handed Driving Ban After Court Hearing Over Arrest

16 April 2013, 14:48

The 'Call The Shots' singer has also been given a fine for talking on her mobile phone while driving.

Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has been banned from driving for six months following her arrest for a driving offence several weeks ago.

The 'Something New' singer was arrested on 4th April for talking on her mobile phone while driving, and was disqualified from the road today (16th April) in a hearing at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court in London.

Sarah was also handed a £500 fine, a £20 victim surcharge and £85 fine in prosecution costs during today's hearing, which she attended dressed in a black trouser suit and white shirt.

"As Mr Freeman has said, he is asking the court to deal with you as opposed to a normal person," District Judge Nina Tempia said while passing sentence. "Well, you are a normal person [and] I can see no reason why you shouldn't be disqualified."

A separate charge of failing to stop for a police officer when asked was dropped after Sarah's lawyer argued that it had been unsafe to pull over right away, after she was approached by an officer on Charing Cross Road in central London.

The Girls Aloud star was handed a ban due to racking up nine points on her licence in total, including three previous speeding offences.

Sarah Harding is now said to be seeking a solo music career after the chart-topping girl band announced their split in March.
