A MOPED rider who was caught on CCTV driving dangerously through Rhyl town centre has been banned from driving.

James Neary, prosecuting at Prestatyn magistrates’ court, said that CCTV operators first spotted Keiron Ingham on April 14 riding down Water Street and into Wellington Road, heading the wrong way down a one-way street.

After squeezing past stationary vehicles he then mounted the pavement, forcing two pedestrians to leap to safety.

Ingham then rode the wrong way up Crescent Road and through red lights, narrowly missing oncoming traffic.

When interviewed, he admitted that his riding was below standard and said he had been “messing about”.

“It was anti-social behaviour and apart from when he rode on the pavement, he himself was at greater risk than anyone else,” said Mr Neary.

Ingham, aged 19, of Glan y Morfa, Ffordd Penrhwylfa, Prestatyn, refused to tell the police who his pillion passenger was throughout the ride. He admitted dangerous driving, having no insurance and no licence, and the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report.

District Judge Gwyn Jones imposed an interim driving ban and said that all sentencing options were being kept open.
