SEVEN drivers were caught speeding over the 50mph limit, with one even going 73mph, on a Bradford district bypass.

Officers from Operation Steerside were conducting an operation on Bingley Bypass earlier this week on Thursday night.

Other than the driver speeding at 73mph, a further two were going 65mph, one at 67mph, two at 63mph and one at 68 mph.

Police say those behind the wheel can expect prosecution letters to land at their door.

In a Facebook post, West Yorkshire Police - Shipley said: "Officers from Operation Steerside conducting an operation on Bingley Bypass last night on May 12 caught seven vehicles exceeding the 50mph speed limit: One speeding at 68 mph, two at 63mph, one at 67mph, one at 73mph and a further two at 65mph.
