Katie Homer, who was spotted driving the wrong way down the M5, has been spared jail. CCTV footage showed her driving north up the southbound carriageway swerving into lorries and going round a roundabout twice.
She was given a four-month jail term, suspended for 12 months, at Wolverhampton Crown Court. She was also sentenced to carry out 180 hours of unpaid work, banned from driving for three years, and ordered to pay £200 costs.
Homer has pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol and dangerous driving at a previous hearing. The sentencing judge told her she had committed a ‘very serious driving offence’.
