Kirk Ling is finally in prison today serving a five-month sentence for a catalogue of offences behind the wheel.

The 24-year-old's record finally caught up with him when he was stopped driving on the A12 earlier this year.

Ling appeared in court on 71 motoring related charges over the last two years.

He had 80 points on his licence - enough to ban him nearly seven times.
