A man's been sentenced to 11 months in prison after he was convicted of dangerous driving in Milton Keynes.

Neil Lambert from Woughton on the Green failed to stop for traffic police on July 25. In an effort to escape he then drove a Renault Clio the wrong way around roundabouts narrowly missing pedestrians and a pregnant woman.

He was arrested and charged with dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving with no insurance. He pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court.

“Lambert’s driving behaviour was dangerous and put members of the public at risk including women and children. Notably he drove at high speed past a woman pushing a pram and narrowly missed a pregnant woman as he squeezed between a parked car and a bush onto the redway, in his effort to evade capture.

It was extremely fortunate that no members of the public were injured during this incident.
