Preston Crown Court

Preston Magistrates’ Court was told after being unwell for two years she had handed in her notice at Virgin Atlantic and was unemployed, and her husband had ben made redundant.

Her father was suffering from cancer and her mother-in-law passed away.

In addition her daughter had been poorly.

A probation officer said the experience of the court system was a deterrent in appearing before the courts in the future.

She said: “She is mortifed, upset and heartbroken and recognises she made a stupid impulsive decision to drive.”

The bench imposed a £200 fine with a £31 surcharge and £85 costs, and banned her for 20 months.
