Police are warning drivers “Dereham is not a race track” after speed checks last night caught one motorist travelling at 54mph in a 30mph zone.

Officers from Breckland Police conducted speed checks on Quebec Road and Swaffham Road overnight and said there were “far too many tickets being issued.”

“Let’s not see another fatal in Dereham,” they tweeted.

A Section 59 notice was also issued to people “found using Dereham as a race track”.

“Wheel spinning at traffic lights is not cool...it is stupid and dangerous,” added officers.
