A DRIVER who broke the speed limit driving across the Orwell Bridge has been fined more than £200.

David Middleton, of Tenpenny Hill, Thorrington, had been driving on the A14 in May last year when he hit 46mph in a 40mph zone.

Magistrates in Bury St Edmunds considered the case in Middleton’s absence last month and found him guilty of the offence.

They imposed Middleton, 61, with a £220 fine and ordered him to pay a further £90 in costs.

Middleton also had his driving licence endorsed with three penalty points.
