Her solicitor David Gittins said Fry was “thoroughly apologetic”, adding: “She got into a car when she should not have and she is sorry.

“She had been at a friend’s house – she can’t remember much but was told there was an argument and she was told to go.

“She had intended to wait for a taxi.”

Fry, of St John’s Road, Unstone, admitted drink driving.

She was banned from driving for 22 months, handed a £200 fine, £85 court costs and a £34 victim surcharge.
