The white-haired OAP wore a black cardigan and blue trousers as she pleaded not guilty at Cambridge Crown Court today.

She was allegedly driving a Mazda 2 carelessly on the A10 in Waterbeach, Cambs, when it collided with the van at around 3.50pm.

Police said the smash caused the Renault Master van to veer onto the pavement – where baby Louis was being pushed in his pram.

Mum Rachael had been strolling down the street with the tot when tragedy struck.

She was left with life-changing injuries and spent more than 100 days in hospital after the horror. Louis sadly died at the scene.

His heartbroken parents, Rachael and dad Chris, were in court today as Robertson, of Waterbeach, spoke to confirm her name and plea.

Paying tribute to his son, Chris previously said: “We will love you always our little Louis.

“You were only with us for a short time, but you made us the happiest people in the world.

“I cannot describe how heartbroken we are that you are gone. You are such a happy little boy and your joyful smile and laughter will never leave us.

“You will always be in our hearts and do not worry, I am taking care of all your animals.

“We love you so much and we know you will now be safe with Granny, Grandad and Great Grandpa in Heaven.

“Take care my little Lou, sweet dreams.”
