A MAN has been handed a three-year driving ban after failing to provide a blood sample to police.

Philip Evan Moss entered a guilty plea when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford on April 28.

The court heard Moss had failed to provide a blood specimen to police when suspected of having driven a vehicle in Leominster on April 13.

The 34-year-old also admitted driving a Kia Sedona in Leominster's Hawthorn Place without insurance or a licence on the same date.

Moss, of Garden Close, Kington, was disqualified from driving for three years and fined £120. He must also pay costs of £135 and a £34 victim surcharge.
