A driver who had been accused of speeding at 64mph on the M4 near Swindon has had the offence withdrawn.

Jason Small, of Cavendish Road in Merton, London, was previously found guilty of two charges.

The 51-year-old appeared in court to make a statutory declaration in connection with these offences.

He was originally convicted of failing to give information when required to Avon and Somerset Police on February 8, 2021, about the driver of a vehicle who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence.

Small was also convicted of driving said vehicle, a blue Jaguar, at 64mph in a zone of the motorway's eastbound carriageway between Junctions 15 and 16.

At the time, on January 6, 2021, there was a temporary 50mph speed limit in place.

This original conviction dates back to February 2021 and was imposed by Bath Magistrates Court.

The defendant has now had the speeding charge withdrawn after making his statutory declaration and also pleaded not guilty to the charge of failing to respond to a police notice.

His case has been adjourned to 10am on February 21, 2023, so that he can face trial at Croydon Magistrates Court.
