Officers caught two motorists driving at least 10mph in excess of the speed limit during morning checks.

Breckland police conducted speed checks in the 40mph zone on Norwich Road in Swaffham this morning (August 2).

One driver was caught speeding at 50mph, with another clocked at 52mph.

Both were subsequently issued with Traffic Offence Reports (TORs), meaning they may be summonsed to court.

In a Twitter post, police said: "I have been out on Norwich Road, #Swaffham, this morning, conducting speed checks in the 40mph limit.
