Officers from the Halifax Neighbourhood Policing Team were carrying out checks along Jumples Crag/Crag.

A spokesperson for the NPT said: "One driver felt it appropriate to travel at 51 mph. He was quickly informed that it is NOT appropriate by the way of a ticket issued for speeding.

"The male already had nine points on his license along with historical dangerous driving and driving disqualifications so he must have the need for speed.

"He is in a spot of bother once he gets another six points for this offence and is likely to be disqualified."
