A 24-year-old has apologised for driving across several gardens in Sprowston after losing control of his car.

Thomas Belsey pleaded guilty to driving a Peugeot 207 without due care and attention on Coughtrey Close on July 10, 2017.

Norwich Magistrates’ Court heard on Monday how Belsey was driving at “excessive speed” without consideration for the weather conditions.

Prosecutor Gemma Whitehouse said the defendant drifted into oncoming traffic and had to take action to avoid a collision.

She said: “He mounted the kerb and drove across a number of residential gardens at high speed without any care or consideration for any other person.”

In written statement, Belsey, of Mildreds Road, Norwich, said: “I would like to apologise for all the trouble I have caused.”

Chairman of the bench Cathy Dobson gave him seven points on his licence and issued him a £120 fine.
