Drunk Rolls-Royce driver jailed after crashing into a Tesco store as part of a revenge mission

Robert Caton, 50, injured six women and caused £20,000 of damage when he drove his luxury car through the front window of the supermarket in Andover, Hampshire in May.

He was jailed for 16 months after the court heard he had drunk two bottles of whisky before he got behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce.

Caton, who suffers from depression and was experiencing money problems at the time, was angry that a bed he had ordered had not been delivered.

The court was shown CCTV from the store and heard that before the incident he asked a security guard how long it would take to evacuate the building.

He then made two attempts to crash through the window as customers fled in all directions.

One of the women injured in the smash was 20 weeks pregnant and had to be taken to hospital.

As well as the jail sentence Caton was also banned from driving for five years.

He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to dangerous driving and failing to provide a breath specimen
