JUST 24 hours after being banned from driving, Martin Lambillion was back behind the wheel of a car in Littleport.
He tried to lose a police officer who followed him through the town, but was stopped in Limes Close.
A check with the police national computer showed he had been given an interim driving ban the previous day for an offence of drink driving - his third drink related offence within 10 years.
At Ely courthouse on Thursday, 29-year-old Lambillion, of Longfield Road, Littleport, admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance, and failing to appear before Ely magistrates on May 9.
