A driver has been stopped by police special constables while doing more than 90mph on the A47 - with their two-year-old child in the car.

Norfolk Special Constabulary, the force’s team of volunteers who support police officers, tweeted to say a driver had been stopped and reported after doing 94mph on the A47 at Acle, where the speed limit is 70mph.

The officers said the driver had their two-year-old daughter in the front of the car.

Special constables have many of the same powers as regular officers.
