Twenty-seven-year-old Kelsey Searle of no fixed abode, but who is from Berwickshire, was also disqualified for another four years and ordered to re-sit the extended driving test.

Searle pleaded guilty to charges of driving while disqualified, dangerous driving, failing to stop after an accident and driving with no insurance.

A not guilty plea to a fifth charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice was accepted by the Crown.

The jail sentence was back-dated to Friday, November 5, when Searle was first remanded in custody in connection with the case.
