TWO Swindon drivers have been fined hundreds of pounds after being caught speeding outside of the county.

They pleaded guilty through the single justice procedure and were then sentenced in courts away from Wiltshire after going too fast on parts of the M5.

Ion Petrovici, of Queen Elizabeth Drive, drove a Mercedes along the motorway's northbound carriageway between junctions six and five in Worcestershire at a speed exceeding 50 miles per hour on October 20 2021.

The 27-year-old was fined £400, ordered to pay £110 in court costs plus £40 to victim services, and banned from driving for 21 days at his sentencing on July 6 at Worcester Justice Centre.

Tobias Holland, of Vaughan Williams Way in Redhouse, drove faster than the 70mph speed limit on the M5 southbound between junctions 16 and 17 on December 4 2021.

The 26-year-old drove through South Gloucestershire at a speed of 83mph.

At his sentencing in Bath Magistrates Court on July 6, he received a £131 fine and was ordered to pay £90 in court costs as well as £34 to victim services.

Holland received three penalty points on his driving licence.
