Ellis McMillan, aged 33, had been served booze before losing control of his high-powered blue Audi RS4 and doing a runner.

He was sentenced at Shrewsbury Crown Court last week to 12 months in prison, suspended for two years, after the crash in Smithfield Road on February 25 last year.

Recorder Judge Julian Taylor also banned McMillan from driving for 18 months.

The footage shows the car slowly crawling off the pavement before speeding up and erratically swerving, leaving a smashed road sign in its wake.
