A MAN who was caught driving whilst disqualified on the A55 on Thursday morning has been jailed.

Adam Anslow , 36, of Llys Delyn, Milwr near Holywell was stopped by a member of the North Wales roads policing team on the A55 at Tal-y-Bont on the outskirts of Bangor shortly after 7.30am on Thursday, September 12.

Anslow was arrested and taken to custody after it was the third time he had been caught driving whilst disqualified.

He had already failed to appear before court on Monday, September 11, after being caught driving whilst disqualified last month.

He was charged and remanded to appear before court - where he received a 36 week sentence and was disqualified for 30 months.

PC Gerallt Williams of the Roads Policing Unit said: “Anslow clearly thought he was above the law but he thought wrong. Drivers who do not hold a licence and are uninsured pose a significant danger to other road users.

"We hope this sends out a clear message to people who continually flout motoring laws that they face the prospect of custodial sentences, rather than just losing their driving licence.”
