A MAN from Romsley has admitted dangerous driving in a stolen car.

Reece Bradley, of Waverley Crescent, drove the stolen Ford Kuga in Crown Lane and Clattercut Lane in Droitwich when he had no driving licence or insurance.

The 21-year-old admitted handling stolen goods on August 11 this year when he appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Tuesday.

He also admitted dangerous driving, driving without insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence on the same day.

Julia Powell, for Bradley, said the defendant had no previous convictions and asked the case to be adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared by the probation service.

Bradley was granted bail with a single condition - that he co-operate with the probation service in the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

The next hearing will take place on October 19 at Worcester Crown Court if possible rather than at Hereford.

Judge Nicolas Cartwright told Bradley that the fact he had granted bail was not to be taken as an indication or promise of what the sentence would be.

He told Bradley: "You will get credit for your plea of guilty at an early stage."

Judge Cartwright imposed an interim driving ban in the meantime and warned the defendant: "If you were to foolishly drive a motor vehicle - in fact any mechanically propelled vehicle - after today's hearing you would be driving whilst disqualified which is a serious offence which carries almost inevitable imprisonment of itself."
