The 21-year-old admitted drink driving after police were called to a collision in Bideford.

A YOUNG woman who reversed her car into a garden wall after a night out has pleaded guilty to drink driving.

Jasmine Sutton, 21, of Elm Grove, Bideford, admitted drink driving after she blew a breath test putting her at more than twice the legal limit.

The court heard she had been on a night out and drank seven-or-eight pints of lager before driving home and crashing into a garden wall in her road.

Sutton said she was very remorseful and did not normally drink that much.

Magistrates disqualified her from driving for 24 months and ordered her to undertake 80 hours of unpaid work.
