A WOMAN whose car was left straddling a garden wall after a crash in Bideford has pleaded guilty to drink driving.

Jasmin Sutton, 21, of Elm Grove, Bideford, admitted to driving while more than two-and-a-half times the drink drive limit during a hearing at North Devon Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

The court heard how on January 18, Sutton had finished more than half a dozen pints of lager while drinking with friends.

Sonia Croft, for the prosecution, told the court that when Sutton entered her car and attempted to drive away, she quickly crashed into a garden wall and the car became lodged.

Sutton, who had no legal representation, was banned from driving for 24 months.

She was also sentenced to 80 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay costs of £80 and a victim’s surcharge of £60.
