Ten passengers were at risk of personal injury in caravan accident

A motorist, who risked a caravan accident causing personal injury to his family and friends, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving after passing motorists saw people inside the caravan which he was towing from Stoke-on-Trent for a picnic at a Welsh beauty spot.

Three other men were in the Vauxhall Vectra and there were three mothers and seven children, aged between five and 14, in the Sport caravan which he had towed for 100 miles before it was stopped by police near Snowdon.

The solicitor for the driver of the Vectra, from Staffordshire, told Caernarfon magistrates the defendant was not aware of the law or Highway Code and that he would not deliberately have endangered his children.

The airline worker, who spent about half of each year based in Saudi Arabia, was banned from driving for two years and must take a test before getting behind the wheel again in this country. He was also fined £900 and told to pay costs of £215.

Speaking after the court case, Sgt Ifan Jones said that the man's behaviour had been irresponsible and risked causing deaths or serious passenger injury in a caravan accident.

"The consequences of this caravan overturning or being involved in a collision are unimaginable," he added.
