A Welwyn Garden City mum has been fined by a magistrates’ court after her daughter failed to regularly attend secondary school.

The period of absence was between the end of April and end of June this year.

The mum did not appear at Hatfield Magistrates’ Court for the hearing on December 7, but the case was proved in her absence.

She has been fined £300 and also ordered to pay victim services £30.

The court will be applying for the money to be taken out of her benefits.
