Shocking CCTV footage of drunk driver going wrong way on M5

Have your say

A Somerset woman who drove 23 miles the wrong way along a motorway after doing a U-turn in the carriageway while twice the drink-drive limit has been jailed for nine months.

Deborah Hunt, 43, drove down the fast lane of the M5, dodging oncoming vehicles before coming to a halt on the hard shoulder.

Mother-of-three Hunt, of Langport, was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court after admitting dangerous driving, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance.

She wept in the dock as Judge Mark Horton said he would be failing in his public duty if he did not jail her immediately for so serious an offence.
