Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team said on Twitter a driver in Bury St Edmunds had been recorded speeding at 67mph by officers at around 4.15pm on Thursday.

However, the speed limit on the Moreton Hall estate, where the alleged offence happened, is just 30mph.

Police described the incident as “appalling” and “unacceptable” given the heavy rain on Thursday.
