A West Norfolk woman who had her driving licence revoked on medical grounds has been caught behind the wheel for a second time.

Jenniene Baker, 51, was in a BMW 6 series on Elm Hall Road, Emneth, on June 10.

This was seven days after she had been before Lynn Magistrates’ Court for the same offence two months earlier.

She was back before the court yesterday to plead guilty to driving after revocation of a licence and having no insurance.

The bench was told that Baker, of Hollycroft Road, Emneth, had been refused a licence in February 2018.

This had been due to concerns over her drinking but during an interview to gain a licence earlier this year she admitted to illicit drug usage, so the revocation remained.

Prosecutor Kathyrn Kibrya-Dean said Baker told officers who stopped her in June that she was on her way to a blood test.

The prosecutor added: “On April 15, 2021 the defendant was stopped for the same reason – driving with a revoked licence and no insurance.

“She was convicted on June 3 – seven days prior to this offence.”

The court heard that Baker had convictions for drink-driving in 2014 and driving while disqualified and having no insurance in 2015 and 2016.

Defence solicitor Alison Muir said it was quite clear that her client had “complex issues”.

The case was adjourned to October 6 for a pre-sentence report. Baker was granted unconditional bail until then.
