A 76-YEAR-OLD gran who led police on the slowest-ever car chase on the A12 is appealing against her driving ban.

Caroline Turner’s legal fight is being funded by sales of a game, designed by a friend, that challenges players to get round the board without being disqualified from driving.

Mrs Turner was banned for a year after admitting dangerous driving and failing to stop for police.

Colchester Magistrates’ Court heard she drove at between 10mph and 20mph from Thorpe, where she went around a roundabout the wrong way, to the A12 at Marks Tey.

Finally, an officer ran alongside her car, tapping on her window to get her to stop. She had been visiting friends in Kirby-le-Soken.

Mrs Turner, from Romford, has launched an appeal and is considering referring the case to the Police Complaints Commission.

She said: “I feel totally demoralised. The sentence was harsh and unjust.”

Friend and game creator Andrew Tucker is helping her with legal fees by donating £2.50 from each sale of Disqualified.

He said: “She has spoken to solicitors to see what can be done.

“I accept she did make an error and so does she.

“But the way they dealt with it was far too strong for an old lady who was visibly frail.”

Solicitors Freeman and Co confirmed Mrs Turner had contacted them about an appeal but had yet to enlist them in her fight.
