AN OSWESTRY man who admitted a string off driving offences, including leading police officers on a  chase, has been jailed for four months.

Cyle Nurse, 31, and of Sefton Place, was given an immediate 16-week custodial sentence by Magistrates at Telford Magistrates Court last month.

This was because of ‘the offence was so serious and the defendant has a flagrant disregard for court orders’.

Magistrates heard that on Friday, March 3 this year, Nurse was driving an Audi car when he was disqualified and that he failed to stop when instructed to do so, and was jailed for 16 weeks.


He then led officers around Oswestry, damaging two police vehicles, a moped and a brick wall before he was brought to a stop in York Street.

Magistrates heard that Nurse also had two young children in the car and was stopped outside a school at end of day.

The defendant, who pleaded guilty all charges, was also convicted of failing to provide a specimen for analysis for police, receiving a concurrent 16-week sentence.

Nurse was also jailed for driving without third-party insurance and without due care and attention, but received no separate penalty.

He was banned from driving for 50 months for failing to provide a specimen and was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £154.
