A WHITCHURCH man has been banned from driving for four years after failing to provide a breath specimen.

Sean Gater, of Roman Way in Whitchurch, was also given a community order when he appeared in Telford Magistrates' Court on May 30.

The 49-year-old was accused of failing to provide a breath specimen for analysis after he was stopped by police in Whitchurch on April 29.


He pleaded guilty to the charge.

Magistrates ordered Gater to complete 240 hours unpaid work.

However, the 48-month ban could be reduced by 10 per cent if he completes a driving awareness course before April 2026.

Gater must also pay £135 court costs and a £114 victim surcharge.
