One driver is set to be "formally dealt with" after the motorist was caught doing 59mph in a 30mph speed limit on Corton Long Lane.

A post on the Lowestoft Police Facebook page said: "We were out in Lowestoft yesterday conducting speed checks at three sites where we had community concerns.

"We dealt with 16 people for speeding.

"Some people were lucky and got a verbal warning, others like this one on Corton Long Lane will be dealt with formally after being caught doing 59mph in a 30mph limit!

"We appreciate there are other sites where speeding is a concern around the town and will continue to monitor and enforce these all when the opportunity arises."
