A motorist has been arrested on suspicion of driving at 172mph on a rural road.
The 33-year-old man was detained by police who had been using a speed gun on a bridge over the A420 near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, on Saturday.

The man has been released on police bail until 17 February.

Helphire, a car lease firm in Abingdon, said an employee who had "borrowed" a 98,000 Porsche 911 Turbo without permission had since resigned.

Now that Top Gear is back, I'm sure we'll get a few more of these copying the show, although this incident happened on Saturday.
