The family were attending a wedding when the man he allegedly caught speeding by police officers.

Officers from the Norfolk & Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team said the driver claimed he was 17-years-old after he was pulled over.

After some checks were completed his true identity was found along with his correct age of 41. The man was reported for the alleged speeding offence as well as reportedly having no insurance or licence.

A spokesman for the police force said: "The offence took place on the A14 Newmarket. He was stopped at Kentford and dealt with for all the offences and the vehicle was seized. One teenage child in the vehicle."
