Claydon/Bury St Edmunds: Biker banned after doing 112mph on A14
A SPEEDING motorcyclist is banned from the road today after being caught doing more than 110mph on the A14 near Ipswich.
Lutgen Terblanche’s licence was taken away in his absence after he failed to turn up for his sentencing at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court.
The 37-year-old, from Birkdale Court, Fornham St Martin, near Bury St Edmunds, was also fined �400.
Terblanche was clocked by police travelling at 112mph as he was riding past Claydon.
He was caught after being seen by an officer in a police patrol car, which followed him along the A14.
Terblanche’s 2012-registered Ducati was said to have been travelling at constant speeds in excess of 110mph, before he was caught.
The incident occurred on June 10 on the Bury St Edmunds-bound carriageway.
