Staff reporter (NW Chronicle)

A LORRY driver was banned for 15 months for driving dangerously on the Britannia Bridge.

Kiril Georgieu Stoianov, aged 53, appeared before Caernarfon crown court after admitting the offence, which happened on September 18 2013.

He was sentenced to a Community Service Order namely 120 hours unpaid work and he must sit an extended re-test.

Investigating officer PC Geraint Jones said: “Individuals who drive on our roads in a thoughtless and dangerous manner seldom give any thought to the consequences of their actions or how it affects others.

“It was just luck that prevented this incident leading to any injuries or worse and now Mr Stoianov has to face the consequences of his actions, which as a professional driver may now lead to his loss of livelihood.”

“North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit and Commercial Vehicle Unit will continue to target those drivers who flagrantly flout the Road Traffic Act and drive in an anti-social and inconsiderate manner.

He added: “Our focus here is to ensure drivers have full control of their vehicle at all times in our efforts to reduce the number killed and injured on our roads.”
