A MOTORCYCLIST has been banned from driving for a year after he was caught driving at almost 130mph on the motorway.

Traffic police spotted Milan Gurung, 28, of Frobisher Drive, speeding at 127mph on the M4 before making a three-vehicle undertake at over 100mph on his Kawasaki ZX motorcycle.

He appeared before Swindon magistrates on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving.

PC Will Ayres said: “Driving at this speed alone is dangerous and puts the driver or rider, and other road users at risk, but when combined with actions such as undertaking, the likelihood of a collision is greatly increased

“Gurung showed no regard to his or others safety, and I hope this disqualification sends a clear message to other motorists who are thinking of putting other road users lives at risk through their own dangerous and reckless actions.”

He was ordered to pay £85 to victim services, £85 costs to the Crown Prosecution Service and was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for 12 months.
