A MOTORIST has been sentenced to four months in prison after admitting seriously injuring a headteacher by driving his car on the wrong side of the road while drunk.

Filip Wiewiorski, 22, of Bramford Road, Ipswich, was sentenced for drink driving and dangerous driving at Ipswich Crown Court this morning. He was also banned from driving for two years.

South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court had earlier heard that Wiewiorski was over the limit when he ploughed head-on into Elaine Purves' car at around 8am on December 15 last year.

Ms Purves, headteacher at the independent Ipswich High School in Woolverstone and who has a young family, suffered multiple injuries and had to have her spleen removed.
