A man has admitted crashing his car through the front of Norwich job centre after being "fobbed off" by staff.

Christopher Leeds, 35, of Fitzgerald Road, Norwich pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and damaging property being reckless as to endangering life.

Norwich Crown Court heard he crashed into the doors of the city's Pottergate Jobcentre Plus on 25 March.

Remanding him in custody, Judge Peter Jacobs told Leeds to expect jail when he returns for sentencing on 10 May.

His defence lawyer said that Leeds was of low IQ and had been frustrated at being "fobbed off" by staff.

The case was adjourned for reports to be carried out.

The gold-coloured Rover 75 crashed through the glass doors of the Jobcentre Plus at about 09:40 GMT.

The building was evacuated and no injuries were reported.
