In court yesterday, he received six penalty points on his license and a further year's disqualification from driving. The sentences imposed, will run concurrently.

In addition, Clark was also fined £50 for failing to stop and £250 for having no insurance.

But magistrates said that as Clark is already in prison, the fines will not be paid and will be considered to have been served within the prison sentence.
