A motorcyclist has been clocked by police speeding at 132mph on the A11.

Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Team said the motorcyclist failed to stop when seen speeding at the road near Wymondham, but their licence plate was taken.

They will now receive a court summons in the post, police said.

The chasing traffic officer said the motorcylist was pursued from Attleborough in the direction of Norwich but the chase had to be abandoned due to the risk.

He said the biker was followed at speeds of 118mph before he saw the officer and slowed down.
