A woman has appeared in court charged with killing a mother of three who died after a car ploughed into her in front of her family.

Debbie Masters, who was 37, died in hospital following the collision in Battle, East Sussex, on 19 March.

Naomi Oxley, 34, of Beachy Head View, St Leonards appeared at Hastings Magistrates Court earlier accused of causing death by dangerous driving.

She was also charged with seriously injuring Mrs Master's husband Ian.

Mrs Masters was pushing her seven-month-old son in a pram at the time and widower Mr Masters, 50, suffered severe head injuries.

Ms Oxley is due to appear at Lewes Crown Court on 7 September.
