Katie Price has been fined after being found guilty of not being in proper control of her horsebox.

The former glamour model turned dressage enthusiast appeared before Mid Sussex Magistrates Court in Haywards Heath yesterday (Monday 28 September).

She was found guilty of not being in proper control of a vehicle after she reportedly veered into another lane while driving her pink horsebox in February.

Katie was seen on a mobile phone by police on the A23 at Bolney, West Sussex when on the way to Euro Disney.

She was fined £1,000 with a £15 surcharge and costs of £650. She was also handed three points on her licence.

The court was shown footage by police of the horsebox veering across the carriageway on 19 February.

A police officer said he saw Katie Price making a texting motion on her phone, but she denied it saying she was spraying perfume.

She was accused of “careless” driving.

“I’m a typical woman driver,” said Katie. “I’m not used to a lorry that big.”

She is appealing the charge.
