A driver caught doing 104mph in his BMW in Corby has been fined more than £1,000.

Duncan McIntyre, 45, was spotted by a police speed trap doing 34mph over the 70mph speed limit on the northbound carriageway of the A43 bypass between Barford Bridge and the Eurohub on November 21 last year.

McIntyre, of leafy Lake Drive, Priors Hall, pleaded guilty by the single justice procedure at Northampton Magistrates' Court last week and fined £923, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £92 and costs of £90. He was also given six penalty points on his licence.
