Devon woman drove car at ex-boyfriend

A woman tried to drive into her former boyfriend in a Devon recycling centre, a court has heard.

Valerie Radymska was dressed in her pyjamas when she drove around Torr Quarry near Kingsbridge.

She shouted: "I am going to kill you. You are going to die," Torbay magistrates heard.

Radymska, 52, of Dartmouth, admitted assault and was given a one year community order and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.

Prosecutor Sonia Croft said Radymska had been having a relationship with Charles Glassbrook for eight years when it "deteriorated fairly spectacularly".

She added that last November she "had some kind of breakdown".

She said: "She left the house in an awful state. She was dressed in her pyjamas."

Shouting at her former boyfriend at the recycling centre where he worked, she twice drove at Mr Glassbrook, stopping short of hitting him both times.

Her car was damaged when it struck a skip that Mr Glassbrook was hiding behind.

Galine Labworth, defending, said Mr Glassbrook had had affairs during his relationship with her client.
