A Northampton driver racked up ten points on his licence and an £800-plus court bill in just 19 MINUTES.

Mobile speed cameras caught Gheza Varga, 47, going too fast through a 30mph limit on Wooldale Road, Wootton, twice in less than half-an-hour in February last year.

Varga, of Clare Street, was clocked at 44mph in his Ford Focus at 1.40pm — then again going even faster, 51mph, at 1.59pm.

Varga, who pleaded guilty to both charges earlier this month, was also ordered to pay prosecution costs and a surcharge to fund victim services totalling £139.
