Anthony Seddon, 57, of Collett Close, Scholes, had originally pleaded not guilty to seven offences including driving first a Volkswagen Touareg and then, more than a year later, Ford Transit Pickup while disqualified from the road.

But at his latest appearance in the dock before Wigan and Leigh magistrates he changed his pleas, including those to driving both vehicles without insurance, having taken cocaine before driving the Touareg and driving the Pickup vehicle without due care and attention.

Seddon also admitted to not having a licence at the time of the Touareg offence in Astley on January 28 2020.
