A Stowmarket driver is due to appear before Ipswich magistrates accused of speeding four times in one day.

April Scott, of Flatford Close, is accused of twice exceeding the speed limit on the Orwell Bridge on October 7.

The 26-year-old is also said to have been speeding on a further two occasions on the A12 between Stratford St Mary and East Bergholt. Average speed cameras are in place in both locations.

Scott is alleged to have been travelling at 95mph on the Copdock-bound carriageway of the Orwell Bridge where a 60mph limit is in place. She is also accused of travelling in the Felixstowe-bound direction at 70mph.

Scott’s Vauxhall Corsa is then said to have been detected doing 81mph on the A12 between East Bergholt and Stratford St Mary at around 9pm, before being allegedly clocked again at 92mph on the return journey at 10.37pm.

Scott is due in court on July 14.
