A motorcyclist will soon be facing a court appearance after being caught doing 100mph on the A47.

Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing tweeted on Thursday about the rider, who was caught speeding on a stretch of the road with a 50mph limit.

They said: 'Another rider on #A47 is now facing a court appearance as they decide 100mph is more appropriate than the 50 limit! #fatal4 #RCRT #845'

Earlier this month, we revealed how 180 motorists were found travelling at more than 100mph on Norfolk roads last year.
