More drivers have been caught speeding along a stretch of the A43 near Corby, with one motorist clocked doing more than double the speed limit at 101mph.

The Northants Telegraph reported earlier this month that officers had found 95 vehicles breaking the 50mph speed limit during a two-hour session on the A43 at Barford Bridge.

It is now one of our regular enforcement locations and will be regularly visited

The speed checks were carried out after complaints had been received about speeding in the area from members of the public.

Since then, two further speed enforcement sessions have been carried out at the speeding hotspot and police say they have detected 257 speeding offences in total from their three visits.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “Since we started enforcement at this location earlier this month, we have been there three times and we have detected 257 speeding offences.

“The top speed detected so far was 101mph.

“It is now one of our regular enforcement locations and will be regularly visited.

“Those who are caught speeding will be dealt with appropriately.”

All of the offences will now be processed and the majority will be fined.

But those recorded at the higher speeds will be dealt with in court.
