Former Ipswich Town player Kieron Dyer has been banned from the roads after cameras caught him speeding on the A14.

The ex-Blues midfielder recorded a speed of 109mph at about 1am on March 1 last year in an Audi A6.

He was charged with exceeding the 70mph speed limit on the dual carriageway near Bar Hill, outside Cambridge.

The 45-year-old, of Dale Hall Lane in Ipswich, attended Peterborough Magistrates Court on Monday for sentencing.

He was also charged with failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver of the same Audi, who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, between April 18 and May 15 last year.

Dyer was disqualified from driving for 12 months due to repeat offending, and received six penalty points on his record.

He was also ordered to pay more than £1,500 for the offences, which included a £1,152 fine, a £307 surcharge and costs of £110.

Last year, the footballer was handed a six-month driving ban after taking a phone call while behind the wheel.

In Suffolk Magistrates' Court, Dyer admitted taking a call approaching his home address, but made an application for exceptional hardship as he has a chronic liver disease.

He argued he must always have his mobile phone on him and must always be within a two-hour radius from Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge in case a suitable organ suddenly becomes available.

This was one of the reasons he left his job coaching Ipswich Town's under-23s, as they played teams as far away as Bristol.

Dyer, who played more than 100 games for Ipswich, underwent a liver transplant in September which he said gave him a "second chance" at life.

He had been diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a disease that attacks the bile ducts, several years ago.

The midfielder started his career at Portman Road before going on to play for clubs such as Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United.
