SPEEDING motorists were clocked at more than 100 miles per hour just over the border in Brecon yesterday (August 9).

Police in Powys have been busy conducting speed checks and traffic stops to keep the roads safe.

A police spokesperson said: "We are still seeing truly unacceptable speeds on our roads by a minority. Cars have been recorded at 110mph."

An image of a motorcyclist shared by the force shows the bike travelling at 128 miles per hour on the Brecon bypass.

And it's not just speeding offences that they have seen, with officers also tackling suspected drug-drivers.

This Yamaha FZ1S was stopped due to the manner of riding in Brecon, and was carrying a pillion passenger in t-shirt, jeans and trainers.
