A SUSPECTED drink driver appeared in court charged with being drunk behind the wheel of a car that killed baby Finlay Woods.

Redbridge magistrates ordered that Katie Gutierruez-Perez, 39, of Selwyn Avenue, Highams Park, be remanded in custody in until Tuesday, when she will appear at Waltham Forest Magistrates Court.

She is charged with causing death by dangerous driving and driving under the influence of drink or drugs.

She will also face a charge of driving without insurance.

15 month-old Finlay was crushed under the wheels of Ms Gutierruez-Perez's Toyota 4x4 when it swerved off the road and mounted the pavement outside Selwyn Primary School on Thursday afternoon.

The baby's mother was also injured in the incident.

Horrified parents and residents struggled to free the youngster who had been crushed against a pillar by the car - as his mother, grandmother Linda, and brother Harvey looked on.

Finlay was taken by air ambulance to Whipps Cross Hospital but died from his injuries soon afterwards.

Mum, Tina, has since revealed that the youngster had been bought his first ever pair of shoes just hours before the crash.

Floral tributes have been left by mourners outside the school, in Cavendish Road.
