Glamour model Katie Price has had a speeding charge against her dropped after a legal blunder.

Ms Price, who is best known as Jordan, was charged with breaking the 30mph limit in Carden Avenue in Brighton.

A trial was due to go ahead at Brighton Magistrates’ Court today but after a brief hearing the case was dismissed.

The former Patcham High schoolgirl, who now lives in Surrey, did not attend the hearing, to the disappointment of photographers and TV crews who gathered outside the law courts in Edward Street.

The model, 30, who now has her own TV reality show, was accused of committing the offence on March 5 last year.

She was also charged with failing to supply information about the driver before the cut off date of April 9.

Her barrister, Katherine Hodson, formally entered not guilty pleas on her behalf.

But before the trial started David Packer, prosecuting, asked for an adjournment to allow the Crown Prosecution Service extra time to prepare an audit trail of the documentary evidence against Ms Price.

The court heard the defence objected to the main witness's evidence being given in court because the witness was not the person who had logged the evidence.

During the hearing, Ms Hodson said it would be unfair to her client to allow the prosecution further time to prepare their case when they had overlooked a point of law.

All charges against Ms Price were dropped.
