Motorist continues for a mile after car loses wheel


CCTV footage has been released showing a motorist driving for a mile through the centre of Lincoln with a wheel missing from his car.

IT worker Philip Dickens lost the front wheel when he hit a wall on his way into the city from his home in Witham St Hughs, eight miles away.

Police stopped the dazed motorist when he got out of the Seat Ibiza at 03:00 on 10 March and he failed a breathalyser test.

At Lincoln Crown Court, he admitted dangerous driving and driving with excess alcohol and received an 18-month ban and a 12-month community order.
