An Ipswich man has been jailed for 18 weeks and banned from the road for more than five years after he failed to provide a breath sample. 

Andrew Katalayi, of Foxhall Road, was sentenced at Suffolk Magistrates' Court on February 21. 

Katalayi, 38, was arrested after being stopped by police in Compiegne Way, Bury St Edmunds, on November 6 last year. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police said he was charged with failing to provide a breath sample and for driving with no insurance. 

Ipswich magistrates disqualified him from driving for 62 months and handed him a jail sentence of 18 weeks. 

The police spokesman added that the sentence was given in view of the seriousness of the offences and Katalayi's disregard for court orders as he failed to surrender to police/court bail.
