Adam Jones, 24, caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to other vehicles parked in the town of Grantham.

He subsequently revealed that he was driving without a licence or insurance, based solely on experience with a PlayStation.

The reckless driver, originally from Skegness, was finally stopped by a police stinger device.

Jones has now been jailed for a year after admitting aggravated vehicle taking and driving without a licence or insurance, ITV News reported.

The joy rider was also banned from driving for three years and ordered to take an extended test - using a real life car.

"You said you 'Only learnt to drive on a PlayStation game.'," Jones was told in court. "You were driving like a PlayStation game.

"You drove as fast as you could as if in a video or PlayStation game without any care for those around you."
