NEEDLE phobic David Myles refused to give a blood test at Wisbech police station when suspected of drink driving.

And on Tuesday he was banned from the road for four years, after he admitted his third alcohol-related offence.

Myles was stopped by police in the early hours of December 15 because he was driving erratically.

The police breath test machine was not working, and Myles refused to give blood because of his aversion to needles.

Myles, 25, of Dowgate Road, Leverington, was ordered to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work and undertake the drink impaired drivers programme with the probation service.
