Gent was ordered to do 40 hours of unpaid work in the next year by Portsmouth magistrates.

The 45-year-old was told to pay £85 in court costs.She was banned from driving for two years.

The ban could be reduced by six months on the condition that she successfully completes a government-approved driving course by August 6 next year. Gent must pay £195 to take part in the course.
