Bugner pleaded guilty to two counts of driving whilst disqualified, two counts of driving without insurance and possession of cannabis.

PC Luke Charlton said: “Bugner has shown no regard for the law and continued to drive without a licence and insurance, putting lives at risk as he attempted to evade police. I hope the sentence given to him will make him think twice about getting behind the wheel of a vehicle again.”
