A SIXTEEN-year-old girl has admitted taking a silver Mercedes convertible for a joyride through Milford Haven, and driving off after a crash.

The teenager pleaded guilty to four charges when she appeared at Llanelli Magistrates Court on April 15.

On April 13, traffic was brought to a standstill in Milford Haven, after the driver of a silver Mercedes hit two cars on Hamilton Terrace, before leaving the scene.

The car and driver were recovered by police soon afterwards.

The girl - who cannot be named for legal reasons - admitted taking a Mercedes SLK without the consent of the owner, causing an accident that damaged other vehicles, and failing to stop.

She also admitted driving a motor vehicle on Hamilton Terrace without a licence or insurance.

The court ordered she pay a victim surcharge of £20 by May 15, and be disqualified from driving or obtaining a licence for 12 months.
