Beauchamp had been disqualified from driving for 18 months in June 2019 after police caught him driving while already disqualified following a previous conviction.

The court noted Beauchamp had “flagrant disregard for court orders.”

PC Craig Purcell from the Warwickshire Police Rural Crime Team said: “Beauchamp has persistently broken the law by driving whilst disqualified and now he must face the consequences of his actions.

“Court orders are there to protect the public from people like Beauchamp; this conviction should send a strong message that police will enforce court orders and seek to bring to justice people who breach them.”
