A ROMSEY man has been banned from driving for two years after failing to provide a blood sample when ordered by police. 

Daniel Clark, of Linden Road, was stopped at Southampton General Hospital on Wednesday, October 4, a court heard. 

Clark, 32, was also caught on the same day without car insurance in Lords Hill Way, Southampton.

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Southampton Magistrates Court on February 2. 

Clark was given a community order which ends on February 1 2025. The court record said: “Offender to comply with any instructions of the responsible officer to attend appointments (with the responsible officer or someone else nominated by them), or to participate in any activity as required by the responsible officer up to a maximum of: 20 days.” He must also complete 100 hours of unpaid work within 12 months. 

His two-year driving ban can be reduced by 24 weeks if a course is completed by April 6 2025. 

In addition, Clark must pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £114 by March 1.
