A motorist has been caught driving at more than 100mph on the A47 - and did not have a full driving licence.

Traffic police officers snared the driver travelling at 106mph on the road at Terrington and when they stopped him, discovered he was only in possession of a provisional licence.

An officer said the driver had recently re-applied for his full licence after having served a ban for drink driving.

The motorist was one of a number of drivers stopped by traffic officers on Sunday.

In Kings Lynn, a driver who was stopped for travelling at 45mph in a 30mph zone was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after a positive drugs wipe.

In Fakenham, a driver was pulled over for having a tail light out and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol.

PC Jon Parker Tweeted: “He is now sobering up in the cells and your roads are now safer as a result.”

The incidents all occurred in the same day a driver attempted to flee from traffic officers by foot in Lowestoft, after spotting a police car pull out behind him from a side road.
