A speeding motorcyclist was clocked travelling more than 100mph in a 40mph zone.

An unmarked police car caught the motorcyclist on the A117 in Lowestoft - the new link road between the A47 Corton and Millennium Way - just after 6pm yesterday, June 24.

Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing and Firearms Unit tweeted a photo of the incident and said: “East team are out on patrol in an unmarked car. They have just done a follow check on a motorcycle at over 100mph on the A117.”

The photo showed the bike had been travelling at 106mph.

The unit later tweeted they had stopped multiple cars travelling at more than 100mph on the A47 to Gorleston.
