A WOMAN accused of crashing her car into a wall during a wedding party at a Chard hotel while nearly two and a half times the drink drive limit has had her trial postponed.

A wedding party was being hosted at the Hornsbury Hill complex when Rebecca Elizabeth Ives allegedly reversed a car into a wall in the car park.

The rear of the vehicle was embedded into the wall and when a number of wedding guests went to the scene the defendant claimed she had not been driving at the time of the collision.

Prosecutor Suzie Butler said the defendant allegedly became distressed when she heard the police were being called but denied the offence after failing a breath test.

Ives, 33, of Pear Tree Close, Puriton, pleaded not guilty to driving a Ford Focus in Hornsbury Mill car park on June 2 last year after consuming excess alcohol.

The charge detailed that a police breath test revealed a reading of 84mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35 mcg of alcohol.

The defendant denied the allegation claiming she had not moved the car.

The case had been adjourned for her to stand trial before Somerset Magistrates at Yeovil however the case was not able to proceed due to legal issues.

Following another review the trial date was put off until March 4 when Ives must appear back before the court.

In the meantime her unconditional bail was extended.
