A MAN will carry out unpaid work in the community after failing to provide a specimen of breath following an accident.

Ricky Elliott, 21, of Brewery Street, Burgh le Marsh, was given a community order for 100 hours unpaid work as well as a 17-month driving ban and £85 costs.

He admitted to Skegness magistrates that he failed to provide a specimen of breath after an accident in his car on August 27.
