British woman who mowed down her ex's new girlfriend in Magaluf is handed two-year suspended sen

Kemi Coaker

A British woman has been handed a two-year suspended jail sentence after confessing to mowing down her ex's girlfriend with a rental car in Magaluf.

Kemi Coaker, 30, from Manchester admitted running over Meghan Tattersall, 25, from Leeds, after a plea bargain deal at a court in Majorca on Tuesday.

Kemi was arrested in May last year on suspicion of trying to kill Meghan in a hate-fuelled hit-and-run after the younger woman started dating her ex Andrew Coaker, 41, from Reading.

She was held half an hour after the May 8, 2018 incident in the nearby resort of Cala Vinyes.

The victim's injuries were initially described as serious and she took three weeks to recover from leg wounds which required surgery.

As well as receiving a two-year suspended jail sentence for a crime of wounding with a dangerous weapon, Coaker was also handed a three-year restraining order which prevents her from going within 1,600 ft of her victim.

A second woman in the hire car stopped by police - believed to be a relative of Kemi's although it was not confirmed at the time by officials - was told she will not face any court action.

Expat Coaker claimed after her arrest that her victim would taunt her whenever they crossed paths in Magaluf and insisted she only wanted to scare her when she drove at her.

She learnt her fate at a criminal court in the Majorcan capital Palma.

My view: Two year suspended sentence for trying to run someone over with a car?, is not good enough.
