Police have warned motorcyclists not to “dice with death” after a rider was clocked speeding at 134mph on one of Norfolk’s roads.

The motorcyclist, a man in his mid 20s, has been reported for offences of speeding and failing to stop at a red light after the incident on the A11 between the Thickthorn roundabout and Wymondham.

He is due to appear in court over the incident, which happened at about 3am on Monday, May 26.

Police revealed details of the case as the hot weather sees more motorcyclists taking to the county’s roads.

Police motorbike rider Sgt Andy Spall said, while the majority of motorcyclists were safe and responsible, a number of people did take extreme risks.

Sgt Spall said: “These people are dicing with death and also putting other road users at risk.

“Whether you are on two wheels or four, bikers and drivers need to respect and look out for one another.”

Last month, statistics obtained using the Freedom Of Information Act revealed how two drivers were caught speeding at 121mph on the A47 bypass at Kirby Bedon and on the A140 at Scole.

Both were travelling 51mph over the speed limit.
