A driver has been handed six penalty points for going at 100mph on a motorway.

Thomas Nicholson, 24, of Lee Brigg, in Normanton, Wakefield, pleaded guilty to speeding in excess of a 70mph motorway limit, on August 30 this year.

He was sentenced at Hull Court House on Monday.

Nicholson was caught driving a black Seat Leon at 100mph on the M62, between the county boundary and junction 35 (Langham Interchange), by manned equipment, on March 25 this year.

The court gave the 24-year-old six points on his driving licence and ordered him to pay £390 in total.

This included a £200 fine, a surcharge of £80 to fund victim services and £110 in costs.
