WALES: Woman 'died' to avoid fine.

A WOMAN tried to dodge a speeding conviction by claiming she had died in a car crash.

Glenda Askew, 47, of Clase, Swansea, sent a letter to the Crown Prosecution Service claiming she was dead.

The letter was purportedly sent to the CPS by Askew's daughter after Askew was accused of breaking the speed limit.

A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed yesterday it had received the letter.

But she appeared at Swansea Crown Court last Friday where she admitted perverting the course of justice.

Her barrister confirmed she had written the letter in a bid to avoid a speeding conviction.

Her case was adjourned for sentencing.

She was released on bail.
