Banned driver facing jail after police chase to Burnley
1:58pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in Burnley
A BANNED driver is facing jail after taking part in a ‘prolonged police pursuit’ from Greater Manchester to the Burnley area.
Ali Khan admitted driving while disqualified, on August 8.
Khan had also been committed for sentence, to Burnley Crown Court, by Pennine magistrates, after being convicted of driving while disqualified, dangerous driving, and having no insurance, on August 10.
The defendant, of William Street, Brierfield, was remanded in custody until October 4, for the preparation of a pre- sentence report.
And he was warned by a judge: “It’s highly likely that a custodial sentence will be passed.”
