Clare Butler, 36, of Granary Road, Newmarket, was given a 12-month community order, 100 hours unpaid work and a 12-month driving ban at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday.

Butler was driving her Ford Focus when it was in collision with an Audi 80 and a JCB on the B1061 Bradley Road, Burrough Green on March 16 last year.

Rear seat passenger of the Audi, 23-year-old Sebestian Andrzej Chlebosz, of Aureole Walk, Newmarket, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision.

Sebestian’s employer, Martin Hughes of Maze Rattan in Haverhill, said all three people in the Audi had worked in his company’s warehouse. Sebestian had worked at Maze Rattan for four years.

“He was a brilliant person to have around. He was a credit to any business.”
