VIDEO: Biker caught speeding at 120mph on M5 in Somerset
A BIKER has been banned from the road for 18 months after being caught speeding at 120mph on the M5 in Somerset.
The 21-year-old was stopped in June after he undertook an unmarked police car near Clevedon.
Inspector Leona Naish, from Avon and Somerset Police, said: "We hope this case sends a message to riders and drivers to warn them to slow down.
"We have seen an increase in serious and fatal collisions involving motorcyclists this year and want to raise awareness of the dangers on the road.
"Speed can often be a factor in collisions and can increase the severity of a collision so we can't stress enough how important it is to drive safely and watch your speed."
