A BANNED driver has been jailed for eight weeks after he was caught behind the wheel of a flat bed truck.

Manchester magistrates heard how Anthony McWilliam, aged 32, of Spruce Crescent, Bury, was disqualified from holding a driving licence.

But he was caught driving a Mitsubishi truck on Bolton Road, Radcliffe, on March 15.

McWilliam, who has previous convictions, pleaded guilty to driving whilst banned and having no insurance and was banned from applying for a licence for 12 months.

He also admitted harassing a woman by sending texts and making phone calls to her for 10 days until May 15.
