A driver who used his car "as a weapon" during a row with a Flintshire Parcelforce worker has been banned from the road for a year.

Lee Willetts was knocked off his feet by Joe Lee Fogerty's Jaguar at the delivery firm's Deeside depot in December 2014.

Fogerty, 21, from Morecambe, Lancashire, admitted dangerous driving.

On Thursday at Mold Crown Court, he was ordered to pay £1,500 compensation and to do 300 hours' unpaid work.

Fogerty was also handed an eight-month jail term, suspended for a year. He must also take an extended driving test before he can return to the road.

Judge Niclas Parry told Fogerty the case involved the "deliberate and repeated use of your vehicle as a weapon" to attack Mr Willets on 6 December 2014.

The incident happened after Mr Willets reminded Fogerty a bill had not been paid at the Parcelforce Worldwide depot in Factory Road, Sandycroft.
