Amanda McVinnie, 30, of Rectory Lane, Standish, appeared in the dock before Wigan and Leigh magistrates to face accusations of driving a Dacia Logan dangerously on Wessex Close, also in Standish, and later giving a reading of 50 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath when the legal limit is 35.

She faces a further charge of smashing the windscreen of a Vauxhall Mariva belonging to Sarah Hynes on the same day, April 15.

The cost of the damage was said to be £250.
