Police were shocked when they stopped a car speeding at more than 100mph on the A11 - and found the driver was hurtling down the road with a 12-month-old baby next to them.

The Vauxhall Insignia was stopped near Wymondham at 7.15pm on Sunday, after police recorded it travelling at 105mph.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads policing team tweeted that: 'The team was shocked to find a 12 month baby in a car seat on the front passenger seat.'

The force has been trying to get the message over the dangers of speeding to drivers through the Fatal4 campaign.

Speeding is one of the four offences which make it more likely people will be killed or seriously hurt in a crash, along with drink driving, driving while using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt.
