A driver has been caught speeding on the A11 after overtaking a police car at nearly 100mph.

Officers were on patrol in a marked car on the dual carriageway at Elveden, on Thursday, April 2 at about 2.30pm when the male driver went past at 95mph.

The post reminded the public that police are still responding to calls and there are multiple ways of getting in contact with officers during the coronavirus outbreak.

It added: “If you want to speak to police we have online reporting or telephone 101 or 999 but 95mph is always going to get our attention.”
