Born in Nigeria and educated at Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School in Crosby, Bell read law at Liverpool University. She was admitted as a solicitor in 1985 and established her own practice in 1994, specialising in criminal and transport law.
She was appointed traffic commissioner for the north-west of England in 2000, becoming the first female commissioner.
In 2012, she was appointed as senior traffic commissioner for Great Britain; a statutory role with responsibility for giving guidance and directions on a range of matters to commissioners, in consultation with stakeholders. She was President of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) UK from 2015–2016 and remains a vice-president. Bell is a fellow of the Institute of Road Transport Engineers (IRTE) and the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), a Freeman of the City of London, a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Carmen and the former Patron of the Society of Operations Engineers.
Between 2016 and 2020 Bell was the Chair of the board of Governors at Merchant Taylors’ School and received a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 2017 for services to road safety and the freight industry.
