A 66-YEAR-OLD woman was caught driving when banned in Dunfermline.

Iona Coupar was in court last year for exactly the same thing and was warned then she was facing jail if she repeated the offence.

Coupar, of Droverhall Avenue, Crossgates, appeared back in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on June 9, in Edgar Street, Dunfermline, she drove a car when disqualified.

However, she could not be sentenced because there was no social work report as Coupar had missed the appointment.

Defence solicitor Christopher Large said his client had “memory issues”.

Sheriff Robert More deferred sentence again until September 8 for the report to be obtained.

Last October in the same court, Coupar was warned she faced jail if she drove again when banned.

On that occasion, a neighbour saw her driving and knew from reports in the media that she had been banned.

Sheriff Alastair Brown warned Coupar then: “If you drive while disqualified again, you’re going to find yourself locked up.”

The previous year, Coupar was banned for drug-driving on the B9157 near Aberdour and Braefoot Bay.

On that occasion, an off-duty police officer became concerned at Coupar’s erratic driving and reported the matter.
