Spondon driver banned after becoming trapped on level crossing

A driver who jumped red lights and became stuck on a level crossing has been banned from driving and handed a five-month suspended jail sentence.

Leighanne Mouser, 27, of Spondon, Derbyshire, who became trapped behind the barriers, was only able to escape when a CCTV operator spotted her and activated the barrier.

Mouser pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Derby Magistrate's Court.

In addition to the two-year ban, she was ordered to pay £85 in court costs.
