Jake Waterhouse aged 27 from Partington had already collided with one tent causing injury to the occupant, before driving over the tent that Anna Evans and her husband were in.

Waterhouse, who did not have a licence or insurance to drive, also failed to provide a formal sample of breath whilst in police custody.

Mrs Anna Evans, wife and mother of two, had only just arrived at the campsite that evening with her husband and were sleeping at the time of the incident.

Despite the best efforts of attending police officers and Welsh Ambulance Service, Mrs Evans never regained consciousness and sadly died in Stoke hospital on the 27 August 2019.

Sergeant Curry said: “North Wales Police welcome the sentencing today. The loss of life in any circumstance is a terrible ordeal for any family to suffer, however in this case Jake Waterhouse, who tested positive for the influence of alcohol upon his initial arrest – chose to drive that car around a campsite, where people rightly have an expectation of safety.

“This was a horrific incident, where the mindless actions of an individual have taken the life of an innocent person.”

“His selfish, reckless actions are devastating, and this message has been reflected in the sentence passed today.

Waterhouse was also disqualified from driving for 12 years and two months.

The family of Mrs Evans have thanked NW Police and bave asked for privacy at this time.
