A driver caught speeding at more than 150mph has been fined.

Linas Gedminas, 36, was caught on camera speeding in his Audi S8 three times on the A17 near Long Sutton in Lincolnshire in one week.

Lincoln Magistrates' Court heard Gedminas, of Stumpacre, Peterborough, was recorded at 151mph (241 kmph), 145mph (233kmph) and 78mph (125kmph) during the week in June.
