A DISQUALIFIED driver who could not wait two months until his ban ended to go fishing, was caught behind the wheel again.

Samuel Paul Hillier admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance on Blackwater Road, Newport, on June 2.

Hillier, of Main Road, Rookley, was pulled over in a van by the police during the early hours, the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court heard.

The 24 year old initially gave police false details — his brother's — said Ann Smout, prosecuting.

Hillier had been banned from driving for a year, until August 1, after ironically being caught driving while disqualified, the bench was told.

Hillier was also subject to a probation order for a racially aggravated assault imposed in November last year and had been engaging well on it.

For Hillier, James Cameron said his client accepted he should have waited another two months for his ban to lapse before he drove again.

"He was going fishing with a friend but should have got him to take him," said Mr Cameron.

Hillier was disqualified from driving for three months, with a £120 fine, £85 costs and a £34 victim surcharge.
