A driver has been clocked by police speeding down a 40mph road at an eye watering 104mph.

Police spotted the Volkswagen Golf travelling down Crosshall Brow at the ridiculously dangerous speed on Sunday morning.

Officers were able to get details of the motor and have reported the driver, who is likely to be faced with court proceedings. 

A spokesperson for the police said: "To the driver of the Volkswagen Golf detected at 104mph at Crosshall Brow (40mph zone) last Sunday morning.

"You will be hearing from us shortly.

"You may find the magistrates disagree with what you think is an acceptable speed for our roads."
