A DRINK-driver who failed to stop for police or turn up to court will be sentenced next month. 

Connor Hill entered guilty pleas to one count of driving without due care and attention, one count of failing to stop when required by a constable, one count of driving while over the alcohol limit, one count of driving without insurance, and one count of failing to surrender to police or court bail.

The court heard from prosecutor Lauren Millichip that Hill had driven a Ford Focus without due care and attention and failed to stop when required to do so by a constable in uniform in Ludlow's Sandpits Avenue on November 15.

The 28-year-old, who was represented at Kidderminster magistrates court by defence solicitor John McMillan was found to have been driving the car without insurance and while over the alcohol limit, with an evidential breath test revealing he had 68 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, almost twice the legal limit of 35.

He had also failed without reasonable cause to surrender to custody at Telford magistrates court on December 19, having been released on bail in criminal proceedings at Shrewsbury on November 16.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report to be carried out by the probation service and Hill, of Hanbrook Close, Shrewsbury, was released on unconditional bail.

He will appear before magistrates in Kidderminster for sentencing on February 14.
