Driver banned after flying through roundabout

A reckless driver has been banned after he was caught on dashcam footage flying through the air after hitting a roundabout.

Ryan Lamb, 18, was filmed in his van vaulting a roundabout on the A11, and found guilty of dangerous driving at Norwich Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Lamb, from Beck Row, Suffolk, had denied driving a motor vehicle dangerously.

He was disqualified from driving or obtaining a license for 12 months, was ordered to do an extended retest, pay £310 to the CPS cost, complete 80 hours' unpaid work and pay £85 victim surcharge.

Lamb, who was 17 at the time of the accident, failed to stop his vehicle and launched into the air as he struck the edge of the roundabout.

He was heading to Sundown music festival at the Norfolk Showground when he crashed his silver Citroen Berlingo van.

The court heard Lamb was travelling with two passengers in the car at the time of the crash and suffered only cuts and bruises.
