A DRINK driver who was arrested following a police pursuit has been jailed.

Spencer Joseph Morris, 31, was said to be driving "all over the place" on the A55 between Rhuallt and Holywell at 9.47am on August 8.

Officers attended the location but Morris, of Oldham Road, Oldham, failed to stop his VW Golf.

He instead led police on a pursuit before finally coming to a stop on Gors Road, Towyn, shortly before 10am.

Appearing before Caernarfon Crown Court last week, Morris was charged with various driving offences including drink driving and driving without insurance.

He was sentenced to 12 months in prison, disqualified from driving for three and a half years, ordered to take an extended re-test and pay a victim surcharge of £156.

PC Martin Done, of the North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit, said: “Morris’s driving was reckless and completely irresponsible that morning and it was only by good fortune that no one was seriously injured or killed.

“Choosing to drive when impaired by alcohol is dangerous and unacceptable. North Wales Police are committed to making the roads safer and have a robust strategy around enforcing the ‘Fatal 5’ offences which includes drink driving.

"We are also about to begin our annual Christmas Anti Drink and Drug Drive Campaign and motorists who choose to drive whilst under the influence should know that we will be out waiting for them.

“Hopefully the sentence given to Morris will act as a warning to others that these actions are dangerous and have serious consequences.”
