A MAN caught driving at more than 90 miles per hour on the A55 had been fined and banned.

Jack Edwards, of Village Road in Northop Hall, appeared at Mold Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old had been convicted of two offences of speeding at previous hearings, having been caught on average speed cameras at Rhuallt Hill during the early hours of the morning on February 8 and 9.

Brian Robinson, prosecuting, told the court that on the first of the two occasions, he was clocked travelling at 92 miles per hour, with a speed of 82 recorded on the second occasion - the speed limit there being 70.

The defendant told the court at the time of the offences he was travelling to and from London from North Wales for work.

He received a fine of £80 for the higher speed, and a further fine of £60 for the other - as well as being ordered to pay a £34 victim surcharge and £220 costs.

The court also imposed a six month disqualification.

Edwards thanked the court, adding: "To behave silly again is just going to land me in more trouble."
