Officers pulled over the driver on a dual-carriageway section of the A47 at Dereham after clocking the car at 12.20pm today (Sunday, January 26).

The vehicle's speed was 25mph over the 70mph limit for cars on dual carriageways.

Breckland police said on social media: "To find three children in the car, an unsecured dog and a bald tyre just absolutely shocked us."

The driver, who already had six points on their licence, could face a summons to court and a potential driving ban.

Police said the speeding and the bald tyre were both 'endorsable' offences which meant both a fine and points on the driver's licence.

Officers have been doing speed and vehicle checks on the A47 at Dereham since this morning.
