A BANNED driver was caught drug-driving in a busy Hereford supermarket car park.

John Wall entered guilty pleas to one count of driving while disqualified, one count of driving while over the drug limit, and one count of using a vehicle on a road or public place without insurance when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in February.


The court heard from prosecutor Valerie Hart that the 43-year-old had been caught after getting behind the wheel of a Hyundai i10 in Hereford's Station Approach Morrisons supermarket car park on November 11.

Hereford Times:

He was also found to be driving without a valid insurance policy in place, while an evidential blood test revealed that he was over the drug-driving limit, with 362 microgrammes of amphetamines per litre of blood. The legal limit is 250 microgrammes.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report to be carried out by the probation service, and Wall, of Etnam Street in Leominster, was handed an interim driving ban.

He will appear before magistrates in Hereford for sentencing on March 6.
