A motorist has been caught doing 91mph on Gorleston bypass during a patrol operation over two nights.

The driver was one of three to feel the force of the law for exceeding the 50mph speed limit.

A police tweet said: “Gorleston officers have been completing speed checks on Gorleston bypass. Over two nights/early mornings last week three tickets issued including 91mph in a 50mph limit.

“Excuses included ‘I’m not from round here’ and ‘I’m late for work.’”
