A VOLVO caught travelling at 99mph was one of several vehicles stopped by police on Saturday.

Officers from Dorset Police’s No Excuse team spotted the car on the A35 Christchurch bypass. The driver reported to court.

A spokesperson said the driver had been rushing to pick up his drunk girlfriend in Bournemouth.

A 2002 Mercedes was also recorded doing 94mph. Officers said the car last passed its MOT in November 2017 and the driver was issued fixed penalties.

A number of vehicles were also seized during the police operation.

A Vauxhall Agila was seized on Magna Road in Poole for no insurance. Police said the driver had been warned by letter two weeks ago but hadn't bothered to insure it.

Elsewhere, a Saab Vector sport was seized in Elm Tree Walk Ferndown because the driver didn't have any documents and was reported to court.

A Vauxhall Zafira was also seized because the driver didn't have insurance or tax and was driving on a provisional licence.

The spokesperson said: “He was unsupervised and no L plates were displayed. His partner and four kids had to be given a lift home.”
