A Yate man has been jailed for breaching the terms of his suspended sentence.

Benjamin Sage, 45, of Blakeney Mills, was sentenced to 12 weeks imprisonment, suspended for two years, in May 2018. This was after driving whilst disqualified in January of that year.

On two occasions in November and December 2019 Sage missed supervision appointments and therefore failed without reasonable excuse to comply with a community requirement of the suspended sentence order.

Sage also did not provide documentary evidence of these absences within the required timescale.

He admitted the breach at Bristol magistrates' court on Monday (February 24) and was jailed for two weeks.
