A motorcyclist has been reported to court for multiple offences after being caught by roads policing officers while accelerating to 110mph approaching a 40mph limit.

The rider was pulled over shortly after undertaking another vehicle on the approach to Norwich on the A146 - on just one wheel.

The motorcyclist has been attempting to pull a wheelie while passing the car, directly in front of officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk roads policing unit.

Officers later tweeted: 'Trying to wheelie your motorcycle whilst undertaking, then accelerating to 110mph coming into 40 limit gets you noticed'.

They confirmed the incident occurred on the A146 into Norwich from the A47, and the rider has now been reported to court for a number of offences, including excess speed.
