Tia Bilman, 29, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday following the incident in Hill Rise, Stowmarket, during the early evening of July 9, 2016.

Bilman, of Gainsborough Road, who was driving her MG, had struck two other cars when she was surrounded by a group of people.

She then attempted to drive away, but became wedged between another car and a wall.

The court was told that Bilman had pleaded guilty to careless driving and affray.

Sentencing her, Judge John Devaux imposed an eight-month prison term, suspended for 12 months, and banned her from driving for six months.

Bilman was also fined £200 and told she must participate in a 10-day rehabilitation activity programme.

Appearing for Bilman, Edward Renvoize said his client had driven to Hill Rise to deal with some comments which had been made about her.
