As the cyclist approached, Nicholas was caught on camera overtaking the cyclist despite the oncoming traffic, before braking to a near stop and swerving her Citroen C3 across the road – without indicating – to turn on to Nelson Quay.

The court heard that Nicholas’ driving “fell below that of a careful and competent driver” and she was driving without due care and attention.

She pleaded guilty to an offence of careless driving at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court on February 28.

There, she was fined £113, and was also ordered to pay £110 in costs and a £45 surcharge. She also had four points put on her licence.
