She appeared at Worthing Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday where she pleaded guilty to the offence.

Davies-White was disqualified from driving for 24 months, although this was reduced by 24 weeks as she agreed to attend a drink/drive rehabilitation course, according to a crown prosecution service spokesman.

She was also given a 12 month community order, ordered to undertake 100 hours of unpaid works, pay £85 costs and a £90 victim surcharge, the spokesman said.

A mini saloon and a Land Rover towing a trailer were involved in the collision, which took place at 8.50am.
