A TRIP to the shop to get something for the kids' butties ended in prison.

Blackburn magistrates jailed Gareth Johnny Morley for a total of eight months after hearing the latest offence put him in breach of three suspended prison sentences imposed on October.

Morley, 39, of Cedar Avenue, Haslingden, pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified. He was further disqualified for 18 months and ordered to pay £128 victim surcharge on his release from prison.

Stacey Morrow, prosecuting, said an officer had dealt with an incident on Cedar Avenue and was leaving when he saw a car driven by the defendant turn onto the street.

"He immediately recognised him because he had dealt with him before and knew he was disqualified," said Miss Morrow.

"He told police he had bought the car three weeks earlier which is an aggravating factor."

Gareth Price, defending, said with three suspended sentences in place for disqualified driving custody was the starting point.

His client had been at home and there was no food in for the children's packed lunches.

"There was an argument between him and his partner about who was responsible," said Mr Price.

"They were running late and he made the foolish decision to jump in the car and go to the shop."

Mr Price said Morley supplemented his income by buying and selling the odd car and that was why he had bought the vehicle he was in.
