A motorcyclist was caught doing almost 120mph when taking his machine out for one final spin before selling it.

Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) caught the rapid rider doing 119mph on the NDR on Sunday.

The motorcyclist was on the bike for one last ride before selling it, but the day "didn't end well" for them after being spotted by police.

On the same day, NSRAPT's east team also stopped another dangerous rider who had committed a number of offences.

Officers found the rider of this bike hiding, and later discovered it had, among other issues, defective brakes and lights.
