A DRIVER who failed to provide a specimen of blood for analysis has been banned from the road for three years.

Graham Chappell, 43, of West View Avenue, Burley in Wharfedale, appeared before Bradford and Keighley magistrates to plead guilty to the offence, having denied it previously.

The incident occurred on December 18 last year in Bingley.

As well as the disqualification, Chappell was handed a community order which included a four-month curfew with an electronic tag between the hours of 7pm and 7am daily at his home which will end on October 30 this year.

His driving record was also endorsed.
