BLUE badge fraud has left a South Yorkshire motorist with a heavy penalty.

Allison Coupland, aged 54, of Droppingwell Farm Close, Kimberworth, was ordered to pay a £75 fine, £50 costs and a £15 surcharge by Rotherham Magistrates’ Court after she pleased guilty by post.

Coupland admitted using her mother’s badge to park in a disabled bay in the car park off Corporation Street even though her mother was not present at the time.
