Gwent Coroner Caroline Saunders said: "Her partner followed her, but Georgina had already left the house in her Vauxhall Astra when he came outside."

Gwent Coroner Caroline Saunders said: “There was a disagreement between the party participants that led Georgina to leave the house around 10.20pm, apparently without telling anyone that she would be going.

"Her partner followed her, but Georgina had already left the house in her Vauxhall Astra when he came outside."

The investigation found that the police had planned Ms. Coombs' trip through eyewitnesses, video surveillance and dash cam footage.

The coroner said, “Georgina went on the M4's western lane, but she's going in the wrong direction against the flow of traffic.

Georgina drove 2.8 km on the M4. She comes across several cars that get out of the way and whose lights flash.

It seems that Georgina tried at some point to avoid oncoming traffic.

"It's hard to understand why she didn't recognize her mistake and pulled her hard shoulder."

The coroner said Ms. Coombs, of Cwmbran, South Wales, had consumed "a significant amount of alcohol" before crashing into Mr. Jones' black BMW on February 22 last year.

She noted a narrative verdict that Ms. Coombs had died from several injuries as a result of a road collision.

The coroner added: “Georgina had used cocaine before she died.

"I think the high alcohol content was the reason Georgina drove in this dangerous and deadly way."

Her family said in a statement at the time: “Georgina was involved in a tragic accident that left two children and a big hole in the family that were really devastated.

"She'll really be missed by everyone who knew her."
