A countess has received a £500 fine after using her phone while driving a Porsche through Welwyn Hatfield.

Countess Anna Karin Yarborough appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on August 30.

She was found guilty of using a mobile phone while driving a Porsche on September 3 last year.

The 54-year-old, of Brocklesby Park, Grimsby, was travelling on the southbound carriageway of the A1(M) between Junctions 6 for Welwyn and Junction 4 for Hatfield when she was caught.

In addition to the fine of £500, Yarborough was ordered to pay victim services £50.

She has been banned from driving for six months.

Magistrates noted how a disqualification was obligatory for the offence “due to repeat offending”.

Six penalty points were also issued.
