A woman who drove into a parked car was four times over the limit and had empty bottles of alcohol in her vehicle.

Rachel Wills, 27, was involved in a collision with a parked car on Oakway, in Manchester, on May 24, while driving a Fiat Punto, Manchester Magistrates' Court heard.

Members of the public heard a loud bang and rushed out to see what had happened.

They say the car reversed and drove forward a number of times, but stayed at the scene.

They called the police, and reported there were bottles of alcohol in the car itself.

Wills, of Lingard Street, Reddish, Stockport , was found to have 132 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, nearly four times the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.

She pleaded guilty to drink driving, as well as two counts of failing to update her driving licence and was banned from driving for 32 months and ordered to carry out unpaid work.

Wills, who is married, had been drinking to excess on a regular basis as a way of dealing with emotional problems, according to a probation report read out in court.

She had recently tied the knot and struggled following the recent loss of her mother-in-law, the court heard.

The court was told she has been on anti-depressants and has not drank alcohol since the incident.

But Wills, who works as a customer liaison officer, is now feeling more positive, the court heard.

District Judge Sam Goozee said the incident was serious and that he was sentencing her to a high level, 12-month community order.

Wills must complete 260 hours of unpaid work and enrol on a drink drive rehabilitation course.

She must also pay costs of 85 and a surcharge of 85.

The judge said: I am satisfied that you are getting some support with your mental health problems, which contributed to you behaving in the way that you did.

I am persuaded that a custodial sentence is not necessary.
