A serial speedster has been banned from driving for six months after breaking the limit in the Hindhead Tunnel.

Andrew Roberts, 35, from Leatherhead, was stripped of his licence at Guildford Magistrates’ Court on June 23 after admitting his latest speeding offence – exceeding the 70mph limit through the tunnel.

The ban was described by magistrates as “obligatory due to repeat offending”.

Roberts was also handed six penalty points, a £461 fine and ordered to pay £110 costs and a £46 victim surcharge.
