AN Ellesmere Port man who drove an electric bike dangerously through the city centre streets of Chester has received a ban.

Zack Hicks, 20, of Arrow Court, previously pleaded guilty to the charge of driving a motor vehicle dangerously, as well as a charge of possessing the class B drug cannabis.

At Chester Crown Court on Wednesday, February 7, Hicks received a 16-month driving ban.

The court heard Hicks had driven a blue and black Sur-Ron battery-powered bike dangerously on Station Road, Eastgate Street, St John Street and Werburgh Street, on June 7, 2022.

On the same day, Hicks was found to be in possession of cannabis resin.

Giving full credit for his guilty pleas, Hicks was sentenced to an 18-month community order, during which time he must complete up to 25 days of a rehabilitation activity requirement, and 100 hours unpaid work.

Hicks must also complete an extended test to reclaim his driving licence once the ban expires.

The cannabis was to be forfeited and destroyed, with Hicks fined £50 for possession.

He must also pay a £95 surcharge.
