Police stopped a motorist for speeding at 100mph on the M40 only to discover that they were driving uninsured and without a full licence. 

Thames Valley Police's Roads Policing Team spotted the car speeding along "in a bit of a hurry" on the M40 near Beaconsfield on Friday, April 19.

Its driver reportedly averaged 100mph along the motorway for nearly half a mile.

Officers flagged down the vehicle and carried out a standard documents check.

The check revealed that the motorist only had a provisional driving licence and no car insurance.

They now "face a day in court" for their motoring offences.

A spokesperson for the police force warned other motorists that speeding and driving without the proper documentation is "not worth the risk".
