A BMW driver who was hurtling along the motorway at double the speed limit had a surprise when one of the vehicles he overtook just happened to be an unmarked police vehicle.
The incident happened on the M56 in Cheshire yesterday evening (26th April).
The Roads Policing Unit TPAC officer was on routine patrol when the BMW passed him at brake-neck speed.
When the RPU caught up with the speeding BMW, the driver pulled over without incident.
Besides travelling at double the speed limit, the driver of the speeding BMW only had a provisional licence and tested positive for several illegal substances.
