KEEN to help provide transport for some stranded friends, twenty-one-year-old James Curry took the keys to his father's Volkswagen Sharan and got another person to drive the vehicle.
His father reported the car missing - but then discovered James had asked his sister to help tow it home, after it sustained £800 worth of damage.
Curry, of Mill Close, Wisbech, admitted aggravated vehicle taking when he appeared before Fenland magistrates on Tuesday. He was banned from driving for a year, told to pay £55 costs, and must carry out 120 hours of unpaid community work.
"He had been drinking himself that night, and got a telephone call from friends stranded in Newmarket," said solicitor Roger Glazebrook.
