36-year-old Adam Anslow of Llys Delyn, Milwr near Holywell was stopped by an officer from the Roads Policing Unit on the A55 at Tal-y-Bont on the outskirts of Bangor shortly after 7:30am today (Thursday, 12th September).

He was arrested and taken to custody after it was the third time he’d been caught driving whilst disqualified.

He’d already failed to appear before court on Monday, after being caught driving whilst disqualified last month.

He was charged and remanded to appear before Court this afternoon 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.”
