A Bury man has been given a lengthy ban from the roads for a string of motoring offences.

Imran Zulfquar drove a Honda Accord on Rochdale Road in the town without insurance or a licence.

The 41-year-old also allowed the car to stop in a pelican controlled area.

On the same day he was asked to provide a breath specimen while in Salford but declined to do so.

Zulfquar, from St Thomas Court in Bury, admitted the four offences during a recent appearance at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court.

Following this he was banned from the road for 40 months.

He was offered the chance to reduce this by 40 weeks if he completes a course.

Zulfquar was also placed on a community order where he must take part in the alcohol treatment requirement programme for nine months.

He was also ordered to complete 15 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

The court took his guilty pleas into account when determining the sentence to impose.
