A WORCESTER man who drove dangerously during rush hour between the Carrington Bridge to Whittington Island has been disqualified from driving.

Duncan Foley, aged 35, of Weir Lane, Worcester, was said to have "swerved" across the road at 7.50am on September 3.

Roger Bleazard, prosecuting, said the right rear side tyre was damaged but Foley had continued to drive for 20 minutes, according to a witness statement.

Defending himself, Foley, who has depression and anxiety, said: "I feel it was not 20 minutes from going from one roundabout to the next.

He said he drove around one mile to find a safe place and said he felt he was in a 'catch 22' situation.

He added that he was test for drink and drugs and it was negative. The court heard he takes medication for mental health condition.

Magistrates handed Foley a 12-month community order and 60 hours of unpaid work. He was disqualified from driving for 12 months. He plead guilty to dangerous driving at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday.
