School run mum who drove into Insulate Britain eco-mob in furious rage says 'I just gave them a nudge!'

A MUM who drove into insulate Britain protesters has insisted she "just gave them a nudge".

Mum Sherrilyn Speid from Essex went viral after footage emerged of her driving into the activists in a black Range Rover.

But taking to Instagram the businesswoman today insisted she simply nudged the eco-warriors, who had blocked her route as she attempted to drop her 11-year-old son to school.

She wrote: "I never run them over, I gave them a nudge, So dramatic man."

Appearing to laugh off media attention, in a follow-up post the mum added: "Someone said RAGE ROVER," with several laughing emojis.

In the viral footage Sherrilyn can be seen screaming: "Let me take my son to school."

After getting back into her car she then drives at a pair, pushing them along the road.

Other people at the side of the road can also be heard swearing at the Insulate Britain protesters.

The confrontation began when Sherrilyn pulled up in her Range Rover and got out to remonstrate with the protesters.

"I'm not joking, my son needs to get to school,move out of the road," she said.

As a female protester explains why they're demonstrating, she blasts back: "My son is 11, he needs to get to school and I need to get to work.

"So move out of the way then. Let me get my son to school."

At that point furious Sherrilyn gets back in her car and drives at a pair of protesters.

A man can be heard shouting "go on push 'em" as she then drives into their backs.

She then gets back out and yells: "I don't care what the f***ing issue is, my son needs to get to school."

It appears the video was shot when school run mums and lorry drivers were held up at an industrial estate near the Dartford Crossing at Purfleet, Essex.

The glamorous mum previously told her "biggest motivation" was her son.

In an interview with Urban Youth Mag about her business venture she said: "He’s such an inspiration to me because of his positive, optimistic nature and his will to keep going and never give up."
