A SPEEDING motorcyclist is banned from the road today after being caught doing more than 110mph on the A14 near Ipswich.

Lutgen Terblanche’s licence was taken away in his absence after he failed to turn up for his sentencing at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court.

The 37-year-old, from Birkdale Court, Fornham St Martin, near Bury St Edmunds, was also fined £400.

Terblanche was clocked by police travelling at 112mph as he was riding past Claydon.

He was caught after being seen by an officer in a police patrol car, which followed him along the A14.

Terblanche’s 2012-registered Ducati was said to have been travelling at constant speeds in excess of 110mph, before he was caught.

The incident occurred on June 10 on the Bury St Edmunds-bound carriageway.

Terblanche was summonsed to appear before Ipswich magistrates in October, but did not attend the first hearing of his case.

The matter was adjourned until October 29.

Terblanche did not turn up for a second time. However, the magistrates found the matter proved in his absence.

His sentencing was adjourned until November 19, but he did not attend for a third time.

The magistrates disqualified Terblanche from driving for 56 days. In addition to his fine, he must also pay a £15 government surcharge, as well as £85 towards the prosecution costs of the case.

In the Middle Ages Ipswich was not without schools, there is firm evidence of a grammar school as early as 1477 and probably as far back as 1399. This school received its Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and went through a number of guises before it became, what is now, Ipswich School. The school buildings are on Henley Road but have previously been in Foundation Street and Blackfriars Monastery.
