A DANGEROUS driver who was spared jail for leading police on a chase through the grounds of Dorchester Abbey has now been banned from the roads again.

Lee Smith, 36, of Wey Road, Berinsfield, was given a two-year community penalty for dangerous driving and driving while disqualified, during a hearing last week.

READ AGAIN: Our original report from court last week.

Oxford Crown Court heard at his sentencing hearing how Smith was first chased by police at Henley Road on September 10 last year because his moped was not insured. As part of his sentencing he was not disqualified but yesterday his sentence was amended and he was banned from driving for 12 months.
