A mother has been arrested for crashing into five cars after drinking wine at her husband’s birthday party.

After drinking, Gemma Hewes, a property executive, got behind the wheel of her Land Rover along with children who were in the back.

The bench at Wimbledon Magistrates Court heard how Hewes was distracted by a phone call before colliding with a line of parked cars, resulting in a Renault Espace being written off, and the steering column of her own vehicle snapping.

Hewes pleaded guilty to drink driving and careless driving and admitted she had asked the owners of the vehicles involved not to call the police as she had been drinking.

She was disqualified from driving for 17 months and fined £1350.
