A man who was caught driving at almost 150MPh was found to be over the drink driving limit when he was stopped by police.
The driver, Billie Rich, was driving his BMW in the early hours of the morning when he overtook an unmarked police car at speed on the A350.
The police car then followed him onto the M4 where the high speeds were recorded and he was pulled over.
Appearing at Swindon Magistrates’ Court, Rich pleaded guilty to drink driving and speeding and was banned from driving for 22 months and fined £692.
An officer in the case, PC Andy Lee, later stated: “His actions put himself, other drivers and road users in danger.”
