Grantham court: Man who took Audi had never passed his test

Have your say

A man who has never passed a driving test took a car without the owner’s consent before being pulled over by the police in Harlaxton Road in Grantham.

Samuel Kenny of Thames Road in Grantham took an Audi belonging to a friend’s girlfriend but was pulled over when police officers noticed he was driving with no lights.

He admitted to officers he had no insurance to drive the car. After being taken into custody he was asked whether he had permission from the owner to drive the car but refused to comment and was arrested.

Bill Fraser, defending, said: “He did not drive very far.”

The case was adjourned for pre-sentence reports.
