She was fined £45 with £85 costs plus £20 victims’ surcharge and had three motoring penalty points on her licence by District Judge David Purcell sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’s Court.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Greenhill was driving a Renault Clio when she edged out of a junction at Collyhurst Avenue and Common Edge Road and collided with a Saab on May 15 at 2.20pm.

Greenhill told the judge: “I was creeping out and being careful.”
