A motorist was clocked driving at more than double the speed limit as police in Norfolk and Suffolk continue an enforcement campaign.

Police say the driver was caught driving his car at 64mph in a 30mph zone on the B1454 at Docking during speed checks being carried out on Tuesday.

On the day, a total of 12 drivers were stopped for speeding between 40-52mph in a 30mph limit and 85-95mph in a 70mph limit.

All the motorists pulled over were issued with police Traffic Offence Reports and will face being fined, points on their licence or even court action.

It comes as the police forces continue to carry out additional patrols as part of the week-long Europe-wide speeding campaign co-ordinated by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network.

The operation runs until Sunday.

A similar TISPOL operation in August 2012 recorded more than 554,000 speed detections in 25 countries across Europe.
