A woman who drove 23 miles (37km) the wrong way along a motorway after doing a U-turn in the carriageway 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.

The mother-of-three, from Langport in Somerset, was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court after admitting dangerous driving, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance. Jon Kay reports
