Adam Jones from Skegness caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to cars parked as he cruised through Grantham on a busy Friday night.

The reckless motorist was caught when he drove over a stinger device while on the way back to his girlfriend's home last April.

During police interviews the 24-year-old revealed that he had never taken a driving test and learned to drive on his Playstation.

At Lincoln Crown Court yesterday, Jones was jailed for 12 months after admitting aggravated vehicle taking and driving without a licence or insurance. He was also banned from driving for three years and ordered to take an extended test.

You said you 'Only learnt to drive on a Playstation game.' You were driving like a Playstation game. You drove as fast as you could as if in a video or playstation game without any care for those around you.

– Recorder Graham Huston
