Dominic Brooke was caught doing 88mph along the Whitchurch bypass, where the speed limit is 60mph, on November 24 last year.

The 56-year-old admitted speeding in June and was sentenced at Hereford Justice Centre on July 25.

Brooke, of Beach Road at Menai Bridge, Anglesey, avoided a totting disqualification after the court heard about how he needs to provide care for a relative.

He was fined £556, ordered to pay a surcharge of £226 and costs of £90 - leaving him with a total bill of £872 - while his licence was endorsed with five points.
