A JUDGE has been criticised by MPs and a road safety charity for not jailing a banned driver who led police on a dangerous chase across Bradford after they caught him on the phone behind the wheel.
Shipley MP Philip Davies slammed the sentence given to Sajid Hussain by Judge Colin Burn as “unacceptable”.


Bradford Crown Court heard that Hussain, 29, sped off when ordered to stop on Leeds Road at 4pm on January 14. Film footage from the pursuing police car shows him weaving in and out of traffic on the busy road and overtaking on a pedestrian crossing in a bid to escape.
Hussain, of Ashwell Road, Manningham, was illegally behind the wheel after being banned for 12 months for driving with excess alcohol two months earlier. At the latest hearing, he admitted dangerous driving, driving while using a hand-held phone, driving while disqualified and having no vehicle insurance. Hussain told police he was too scared to stop because he had taken a relative’s car without permission while banned and uninsured.
Judge Burn sentenced Hussain to three months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, and said: “There are a great many serious accidents and deaths caused on the roads as a result of people who say they panicked when they saw a police car and tried to get away.”
