POLICE are hunting a biker who sped off at more than 100 miles per hour on a busy Poole road during rush hour.

Officers from Dorset Police’s No Excuse team spotted the rider in Ringwood Road, close to the junction with Alderney Avenue, at around 6.20pm on Wednesday.

The rider, who was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, had fake plates on his white BMW bike.

On spotting the police car, he accelerated off, travelling at more than three-and-a-half times the speed limit.

The incident happened in a stretch of Ringwood Road which is subject to a 30mph limit.

A spokesperson from the No Excuse team said: “The motorcycle failed to stop for officers after a recorded speed of 107mph along Ringwood Road.

“The vehicle in question was displaying false plates.

“Enquiries are ongoing to catch the rider.”

Anyone who knows the rider is asked to contact police by calling 101, quoting 10:403.

On the same day, the driver of a Nissan Micra was pulled over after officers spotted him on his phone.

Officers said he “smelled strong of alcohol”, but passed the breath test.

However, a roadside drug test was carried out after the driver allegedly admitted smoking cannabis earlier that day.

The swipe tested positive for cocaine, police allege. The man was arrested and taken to the police station.

The following day, the team stopped a number of vehicles in Bournemouth.

A car travelling at 52mph in a 40mph was the first to be pulled over by officers.

When the driver was stopped, she told the team: “I’ve just lost four pounds at Slimming World and gained three points from the police.”

A white van was then seized by the officers as it had no insurance and the MOT had expired.

A Volkswagen Golf was then next car to be seized from its owner as it had no insurance.

An officer said: “The driver had borrowed the vehicle from a family member and assumed the vehicle had cover for her to drive it.”

Police seized a third car a short while later after noticing the Honda in a “questionable overtake”.

The driver said she was a named driver on her husband’s policy. However, police said: “This was not the case.”

All drivers stopped for no insurance will receive a minimum £300 fine along with six points. They will also have to pay at least £150 to get their cars back.

The final motorist stopped was on her phone. She said she was replying to a text message and was issued with six points and a £200 fine.
