Driver spared.

A banned driver who gave police a false name when he was caught back behind the wheel was spared jail.

When officers pulled Gavin Ridley over in a Volvo in Blaydon Avenue, South Shields, in February, he gave them the name of an old school friend in a bid to throw them off the scent.

But investigations showed Ridley was the driver and he was arrested for perverting the course of justice and driving while disqualified. Ridley, 19, of Trinity Walk, South Shields, who admitted the offences, was given 12 months community rehabilitation and a two-year ban.
