A motorist has been caught driving at 109mph in foggy conditions near Dereham.

The driver was clocked by a speed camera on the A47 at around 6.30pm on Sunday.

A Norfolk police spokesman said: 'The vehicle's owner will be sent an Intention to Prosecute notice via the Traffic Justice Unit.

'The owner will then be required to name the driver at the time of the incident and that person will be summoned to court for driving at excess speed.'

The incident was Tweeted by Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing, along with a reminder of the Fatal Four campaign, run by the Think! Norfolk road safety partnership, which aims to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured in Norfolk's roads.

It highlights the four behaviours which cause serious and fatal crashes - speeding, drink driving, using a mobile phone while driving and not using a seat belt.

It is predicted that the thick fog which caused delays to travel across Norfolk early in the week will not return.

Adam Drury, from Weatherquest, said: 'The high pressure that caused the fog has gone and we are not expecting any more fog this week or in the near future.

'Driver should, however, be weary of rain and drizzle, which could cause visibility problems.'
