Nottinghamshire PCC admits five speeding offences

PCC Caroline Henry has appeared at a Magistrates court after being caught breaking a 30mph limit five times within a 12-week period.

The PCC for Nottinghamshire Police admitted the offences, including two committed on consecutive days, at a previous hearing in February at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.

In an administrative hearing on Tuesday, the court heard the 52-year-old, who was elected to the post in May 2021, was caught speeding in 30mph zones at four locations in Nottingham in March, May and June last year. One of the incidents was near a Primary School.

In a letter to the court, Ms Henry said she was "very sorry, embarrassed and ashamed".

She is set to argue that two of the five offences were due to "emergencies" and one when she was "very concerned for one of her children".

She is due to be sentenced in July.

In a statement, Caroline Henry said: "For technical legal reasons, the court has constituted that they cannot deal with the case today. I cannot comment on the ongoing case. I will be explaining the context of this matter in due course."
