Sixth former banned for failing to supply breath sample to police

Sixth form student Greg Pilgrim, 18, has been banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to failing to provide police with a specimen for analysis.

Pilgrim, of Water Mint Way, Calne, who hopes to be an engineer and studies maths, biology and chemistry, had to quit his part-time job at Hullavington go-kart centre after he crashed his Vauxhall Corsa into a parked Mercedes in Curzon Street at 8.20am on Sunday, March 23.

A first breath test was positive and he failed to provide a second, for which he apologised through his solicitor to Chippenham magistrates on Thursday.

Pilgrim must still pay his £1,800 a year car insurance in order to make a claim, plus a £100 fine, £85 court costs and £20 victim surcharge.
