A WOMAN who consumed a cocktail of drugs before driving into the back of a lorry on the busy A14 has been ordered to complete of substance abuse programme as part of her two-year supervision order.
Melanie Nunn, who had cocaine, opiates, methadone and benzodiazepines in her system at the time of the accident, was also banned from driving for two years by Ely magistrates, and must pay �60 costs.
