A DRINK driver holidaying in a caravan park crashed her car after a journey of only 200 metres, a court heard.

Kay Hewitt appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, where she pleaded guilty to driving while over the limit.

The court was told the 38-year-old was twice over limit while driving her Land Rover Discovery at Haven Lakeland Leisure Park in Flookburgh on June 15.

She had 70 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The limit is 35.

Magistrates heard she drove from the site's clubhouse to the caravan she was staying in but crashed on the way.

The car was said to have sent out an accident signal to BT.

Prosecutor Pam Ward said she fled the scene when police came, but returned later when she 'came to her senses'.

Defence solicitor Andy Gallagher told the court: "To say this lady is devastated at the position she has put herself in is a huge understatement."

Hewitt, of Babbacombe Road, Liverpool, was fined £650 for the offence and banned from driving from 19 months.

She was also told to pay a £65 victim surcharge £85 costs.
