Mr Loophole Nick Freeman: Raise motorway speed limits

Nick Freeman, the road traffic lawyer better known as "Mr Loophole" for helping a series of celebrity clients in court, says he backs raising the motorway speed limit as suggested by Transport Secretary Philip Hammond from 70mph to 80mph.

He likes going fast and reckons three out of four British motorists break the limit, and it is time to raise the limit brought in decades ago when cars could not go as fast as they can today.

Environmentalist George Monbiot disagrees with higher speed limits and put the other side to Mr Freeman's arguments: click here to watch the studio debate that followed.
