A man has been arrested after he was caught driving at 116mph on the M54.

The driver overtook an unmarked police car before being pulled over yesterday morning.

The Operational Patrol Unit in Shropshire tweeted: "This driver averaged 116mph after overtaking one of our unmarked cars.

"Not wise when you’re already disqualified, uninsured and driving with cocaine in your system.

"And he didn’t know his brothers date of birth when he tried to give false details. Arrested of course. #fatalfour."
