Norfolk PC drove at 101mph in 30mph zone 'while training'

A police driving instructor clocked speeds of 101mph in a 30mph area, a court heard.

PC Paul Brown, 48, of Norwich, denied 16 driving offences while in an unmarked police BMW X5.

Ipswich magistrates heard he drove with blue lights on, ran four red lights and reached speeds of 122mph.

He was cleared of the charges after telling the court he was carrying out continuous professional development (CPD) - a mandatory requirement.

Crazy! Can you imagine what would happen if a mere mortal (one of us) got caught running red lights & driving at those speeds? One rule for us, one rule for certain others, so it seems!
