A Felixstowe woman who tried to set fire to a caravan in a holiday park and faced charges of criminal damage and drink driving has been handed a suspended sentence and a restraining order.

Susan Yates, 54 of Sea Road, appeared before Ipswich Crown Court this afternoon where Judge David Pugh gave her a 20 month jail sentence, suspended for 24 months.

The court also heard Yates was to be subject of a restraining order meaning she could not go near or contact the victim.

Yates must also pay £350 pounds in compensation to the victim in payments of £100 per month.
