A 27-year-old woman has been charged with drink driving and being drunk while in charge of a child under the age of seven after a crash on a slip road in Dereham.

Katie Lake, of Yaxham Road, Dereham, is due to appear before King's Lynn magistrates on Monday May 13.

The charges follow a head-on collision between an Audi car, which was carrying a baby, and a lorry on a slip road coming off the A47 near the Roys store on March 13.

The baby was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for a routine check.

The two drivers were not hurt. The slip road was closed for three hours.
