A dozen drivers have been caught speeding today in Great Yarmouth during a patrol operation by a Norfolk police roads policing unit.

The N & S Roads Policing team snared 12 drivers who had flouted 30mph zones.

One motorist was reported as doing 65mph, with one vehicle being seized for having no insurance and MOT.

A police tweet said: “East team in Great Yarmouth today & reported 12 drivers between 43mph & 65mph (30mph limit) 1 seized no insurance/MO.”

The same policing unit also arrested a driver on Sunday in Great Yarmouth after the motorist tested positive for cannabis and cocaine.

And today the unit also seized a car in Lowestoft after it was confirmed there was no insurance for it.
