JUST two weeks after being banned from driving, Glenn Burrell decided to drive into town to do some shopping.

At Wisbech courthouse on Wednesday, 32-year-old Burrell, who lives at a caravan site in of Railway Lane, Wisbech, admitted driving when disqualified and without insurance on January 22.

"He had no great reason for driving, but he needed some shopping," explained solicitor Roger Glazebrook.

Burrell, who was originally given a six-month ban on January 9, was given a fresh nine-month driving ban. He was also given an 18 month community order, with 100 hours unpaid work and supervision by a probation officer.
