OFFICERS who spotted a taxi reaching speeds of 92mph on a motorway were shocked to discover he had two paying passengers in the back.

Lancashire Road Police were patrolling on the M65 when a taxi came to their attention close to the exit for Burnley.

A spokesman said: "This taxi was stopped in Burnley having been followed doing 92mph on the M65 in the rain.

"Disgracefully he had two fares in the back and to make things worse he already has 10 points for speeding offences. Lesson clearly not learned so reported for summons."
