AN ASTON Martin driver who "liked the sound of the grunt from his engine" was stopped for speeding and driving without due care and attention in Sandbanks.

Officers from the Dorset Police No Excuse team witnessed the Aston Martin Vantage accelerating several times to 50mph before slowing down again in a 30mph limit in Sandbanks Road yesterday.
