A speeding car clocked going at almost double the speed limit in Great Yarmouth refused to stop when requested - and swerved past a police officer to get away from the scene.

The BMW 3 series car was spotted doing 59mph in a 30mph zone in Pasteur Road in Great Yarmouth at 9.15pm on Sunday.

But when a police officer on foot tried to get the driver to stop, the car swerved past them and left the scene.

The vehicle has been seized and police are making enquiries.

Anyone with information should call Norfolk police on 101.
