Banned driver crashes stolen car on Plumstead Road, Norwich after drinking

A banned driver crashed a stolen pick-up truck while over the drink-drive limit and with no insurance.

Anthony Hills, of no fixed abode, was arrested on Saturday for five offences.

The 40-year-old admitted to the charges of dangerous driving, taking the car, driving while disqualified and drink-driving at Norwich Magistrates' Court yesterday.

He crashed the car on Plumstead Road in the north-east of the city on January 7 damaging the Vauxhall Brava truck and two walls. Hills was more than twice the drink- drive limit, with 85mcg alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35.

District Judge Peter Veits sent the case to Norwich Crown Court for sentencing.

Bail was refused.
