Learner driver Jenkin, had no insurance and was driving a £40 Ford Ka he bought on Gumtree when he ploughed into mother-of-one Jill Pirrie, 33, as she walked home from work.

The horror crash took place at Old Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, on May 12 2016 after Jenkin lost control of his car on a bend.

Jenkin admitted breaching the peace in the prison fight when he appeared before Falkirk Sheriff Court.

Judge Derek Livingstone ordered he spend another 20 days behind bars, according to newspaper reports.
