A DRIVER who got behind the wheel of a car while he was banned and caused damage to a number of vehicles has been jailed.

Lee Wallbank, of Shackerley Road, Tyldesley, was driving a Seat Leon on Astley Street around 4am on November 6 while he was disqualified.

Dashcam footage from Greater Manchester Police captured the aftermath of a crash in which a number of cars were damaged.

Wallbank, 27, was found guilty of driving without due car and attention and not having any car insurance.

He also refused to give a blood sample to officers.

The defendant was sent to prison for 26 weeks and ordered to pay a £115 victim services surcharge fee when he appeared at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Wallbank has also been banned from driving for three years.
