‘OH, how we love the speed camera! And they are every bit as popular with our friends in Belgium as they are back here.

There, a Brussels motorist has been sent a speeding ticket for travelling at 2,100 mph – three times the speed of sound!

That’s even more impressive when you learn that he was driving a standard Mini.

When the driver refused to pay, action was taken.

Prosecutors said: ‘We called the local police to find out what height the plane caught speeding along the Boulevard Lambermont was flying at.’

Only, it wasn’t a plane; it was a small nippy motor.

But all is okay – the police realised their error and blamed things on a faulty radar.

To say nothing of their crass stupidity.’
