A driver who crashed into pedestrians when she lost control of her car has received a suspended prison sentence.

Seven people, including a toddler and his baby sister, were injured in the crash outside the Friary Centre, in Guildford, Surrey, last October.

Margaret Heslop, 89, of Guildown Road, appeared before the town's magistrates and pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

She was sentenced to eight weeks in prison, suspended for six months.

She was ordered to pay £85 in court costs and an £80 victim surcharge, and was also disqualified from driving for two years.
