Driving at a "constant" speed of 120mph for a fifth of a mile has landed a Watford motorist a £534 bill.

Naveed Ghazanfar has admitted to driving way over the 70mph speed limit anti-clockwise on the M25 near Brentwood.

A calibrated speedometer showed that the 41-year-old’s Toyota had maintained the constant 120mph speed for a fifth of a mile, which would still only have been six seconds.

It was recorded at 11.23pm on March 19 last year.

On February 23, Colchester Magistrates’ Court fined Ghazanfar, of Benskin Road, Watford, £385 and he was ordered to pay costs and a victim services surcharge totalling £149.

His driving record was endorsed with six points.
