SIR Michael Caine’s daughter has been given a six-month driving ban — despite claiming it would hamper her caring for the 89-year-old actor.
Dominique Caine, 65, admitted doing 64mph in a 50mph zone in a Range Rover near her home.

Her lawyer James Findon told Cheltenham magistrates’ court: “She provides care to her father, based in London.
“If she was deprived of her ability to drive it would necessitate the use of three trains and two buses.
“The travel time would be in excess of eight hours.”
He also provided letters of support from Sir Michael’s wife — her stepmother — Shakira.
It would also affect a horse eventing firm she supports, the court heard.
But district judge Nicholas Wattam found a ban would not cause “exceptional hardship”.
Ms Caine, of Gloucestershire, must also pay £324.
