A MOTORIST whose car mounted the pavement and collided with a party of school children has spoken for the first time about the remorse and sadness she feels.

Last month it was announced that the 41-year-old woman driver would not face charges over the crash in Worlingham, near Beccles, which left eight children in hospital.

The youngsters from Worlingham Middle School were on a supervised walk when the crash happened outside All Saints' Church on September 25 last year.

During a meeting between police, the Crown Prosecution Service and parents at Worlingham Middle School last night, the Lowestoft woman issued a statement describing how there was not one day since the accident she didn't think about that 'horrible' day.

The statement read: “I am so sorry for the accident and everyone that got hurt. There is not one day I don't think about that horrible day.

“2009 was the worst year of my life. I want to try and put the accident behind me now.

“As a parent myself I can understand how parents are upset and angry as if it was the other way round I would feel the same.”
