The central team of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) were conducting speed checks in Chapel Lane, Wymondham, on Thursday morning, April 30, following complaints made by the public about driving in the area.

At 8.53am they caught a driver behind the wheel of an Audi travelling at 89mph – almost three times the limit.

In a tweet to his NSRAPT colleagues, Sgt Chris Harris said: “Absolutely shocking – three times the limit in a 30mph limit. Just glad you got to them before anything happened.
