A DRIVER seen going at 90mph through Handbridge in Chester has admitted a charge of dangerous driving.

Jack Brown, 20, of Green Meadows, New Broughton, Wrexham, pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared at Chester Magistrates Court on Friday, January 19.

He also admitted driving the Audi A4 vehicle when he did not have a valid licence or insurance for that car, and admitted failing to stop when asked to do so by police.

Prosecuting, Jessica Pridding said it was 10.30pm on December 27, 2023 when police became aware of the silver Audi.

The driver – Brown – was asked to stop, and did so, but he then drove off again.

A police pursuit ensued and the Audi was recorded as going at 90mph in the 30mph zone at Handbridge, then subsequently drove at 100mph in a 50mph zone and 80mph in a 20mph zone in Wales.

When police found the car in Jeffreys Road, Wrexham, its exhaust was "hanging off".

The court heard that Brown initially gave false details.

Brown had one previous conviction from 2019 for possession of a bladed article and battery.

The court heard Brown accepted it was a serious matter and a pre-sentence report would be required.

Magistrates agreed and Brown was bailed for an 'all-options' pre-sentence report to be compiled.

Brown is to be sentenced on February 19. He was handed an interim driving disqualification.
