An uninsured driver was clocked speeding at 111mph on a main Cambridgeshire road while his unrestrained five-year-old child was in the car.  

The reckless speeder was caught on the A1M at Peterborough on Monday (May 3) and has since been reported by police and fined.  

After officers from Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s roads policing unit stopped the driver, they made the shocking discovery of the child in the back. 

A police spokesperson said: “The driver was caught speeding at 111mph on the A1M at Peterborough.
