A woman who drove a seven-year-old child whilst nearly five times over the drink drive limit has been sentenced. 

Jurate Rimgailiene was spotted by police driving a yellow Nissan Juke on the A1198 near Caxton with no rear lights on June 24.  

Officers tried to get Rimgailiene to pull over, but continued driving around the area in a near 30-minute pursuit before stopping in Cambourne at around 11.45pm. 

The 34-year-old woman blew 172 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 35. 

Police also found a seven-year-old boy sat in the back of the car. 

Rimgailiene, of Crocus Grove, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to drink driving and failing to stop, and was given a 12-week suspended sentence for 12 months at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on July 28. 

She was also disqualified from driving for 32 months.
