Officers arrived at the scene and he refused to provide a breath sample and said at the scene he “didn’t like the attitude of the police officer”.

Mitigating for himself, Webb said that he didn’t receive any medical attention from the police.

“It was the first time I was ever in a car accident.

“I was given no medical attention and my head was bleeding.”

He added: “My memory from the time the accident happened was vague, I was shellshocked, injured and not myself.

“I was kicking off more than I should have been, I later asked to do a breath test but was told it was too late.

“Me and the police officer didn’t get on, maybe because of him, maybe because I had a pretty bad head bang.

“Sometimes the police are not trustworthy, they didn’t let me sit down after banging my head.”

Webb was disqualified from driving for 17 months and was fined £120 along with a victim surcharge of £48.
