A Tesla driver has been ordered to pay more than £200 for driving at 65mph on the motorway.

Karim Usmani, 29, of Burgess Wood Road South in Beaconsfield, was fined £139 and ordered to pay £124 costs for the offence on the M4 motorway.

Although the maximum speed on the motorway is usually 70mph, the limit had been reduced to 50mph on some stretches of the road during smart motorway upgrade works.
