Former Ipswich Town footballer Titus Bramble has been fined for two speeding offences that happened seven minutes apart on Christmas Day last year.
Bramble, 33, of Wellington Drive, Wynyard, Billingham, Cleveland, drove his Mercedes at 89mph on the A14 at Girton at 2.09pm and then at 92mph on the A14 at Fenstanton at 2.16pm. The speed limit for the road is 70mph.
At Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court yesterday (August 21) Bramble’s solicitor Barry Warburton dealt with the case in his absence.
Mr Warburton said the defendant had a clean driving licence before the offences took place.
“Both of these are at the bottom end of the scale,” he added.
