Dashcam catches dangerous driver

Dashcam footage has captured the moment a man almost crashes TWICE after pulling a 'dangerous' manoeuvre.

Driver Philip Gordon Wearing from Macclesfield was spotted overtaking several vehicles while pulling a trailer along the narrow A487 in Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynedd, last September.

The 58-year-old was handed a six-month suspended jail term after pleading guilty to dangerous driving at Caernarfon Crown Court. He was ordered to do 150 hours unpaid work and banned from driving for a year.

It's Shrove Tuesday today and people across the region will be tucking into their pancakes later on.

But in Macclesfield they like their pancakes a little racier.

This morning the town held it's annual pancake race to raise money for charity.

The course proved rather tricky for some who came unstuck on the town centre cobbles - but all the money raised will go to the East Cheshire NHS trust charity Echo
