Mosley, of Norris Drive in Southway, finally admitted driving without insurance.

He denied failing to stop for a police officer in uniform.

Katie Churcher, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said that the not guilty plea was “unlikely to make a difference” to the case.

Judge James Townsend adjourned sentencing until October 21 for a probation report to be prepared.

He warned Mosley: “You must understand that these offences are frequently serious and a prison sentence may be coming your way.”

Mosley was released on unconditional bail and handed an interim driving ban until the next hearing.
