Driving ban for Cumbrian car driver clocked at 128mph

A motorist clocked doing almost 130mph on a major road has been banned from driving.

Malachy Patrick Cordin, 25, of Furness House, Little Clifton, Workington, appeared at Carlisle’s magistrates court today.

He was caught travelling at 128mph in his Ford Focus on the A595 Distington bypass at 11.30am on May 12. The legal speed limit on this road is 70mph. He pleaded guilty to speeding.

Martin McAlister, defending, said Cordin needed to be able to drive to work and described the event as a “lapse of judgement”.

Magistrates banned Cordin from driving for 40 days.

He was also ordered to pay a fine of £375, £85 in costs and a victim surcharge of £37.

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars
