A driver who crashed into another car after taking drugs, killing two men, has been jailed for eight years.

Sadie Fuller, 32, admitted causing their deaths and seriously injuring a woman in the crash on 27 May on Exning Road in Newmarket, Suffolk.

Paul Gale, 43, the front seat passenger of Fuller's Volkswagen Golf, and Marius Giocas, 20, the driver of the other car, died at the scene.

The prosecution said she had been driving at "excessive speed".

Ipswich Crown Court heard she was "driving away from police, or at least thought she was".
