A MAN has denied driving dangerously on one of the region's main trunk roads.

Lee Teasdale also denies driving while disqualified during the incident on August 20 last year.

Prosecuting at Teesside Crown Court, Sue Jacobs said the defendant was alleged to have driven dangerously in a Subaru vehicle on the A19, Portrack Lane, Stockton, and Haverton Hill Road.

Judge Howard Crowson adjourned the case ahead of an expected trial in the week beginning March 10.

Teasdale, 21, of Mount Pleasant Grove, Stockton, was told he was free to go in the meantime by the judge.
