A man who twice in eight days flouted a drink-driving ban was jailed for eleven weeks on Monday by a special court at Llandudno.

Peter Ring, aged 39, of Uwch y Llan, Cerrigydrudion, also received a fresh three-year ban and must pay a £115 surcharge.

He pleaded guilty to driving a van on May 5 at Denbigh while banned and a Ford Fiesta on April 27 at Rhuddlan.

Angela Narey, prosecuting, said Ring was under a suspended jail sentence.

Defence solicitor Nia Dawson said Ring was self-employed with three men working for him. He’d made some “unwise” choices.
