He continued: “It is an abhorrent speed and I don’t stand here to trivialise that speed.
"He received a call from his sister-in-law who was pregnant and had taken ill and was at the hospital..
"He has never appeared in court before. He is extremely ashamed and embarrassed by this situation."
District Judge Rosie Watters imposed a fine of £250 and disqualified the defendant from driving for six months.
