A Ledbury driver was caught travelling at almost 80 miles per hour in a 40 zone.

Lewis Perry entered a guilty plea to magistrates in Bath.

The court heard the 43-year-old had been caught breaking the limit behind the wheel on the M32 Severn Beach Rail Line overbridge at Bristol on May 16.

He was caught speeding at 78 miles per hour, nearly twice the 40 miles per hour speed limit.

Perry, of Donnington, Ledbury, was fined £500 and received six penalty points. He must also pay costs of £90 and a £34 victim surcharge.
