Send him down

Posted in The Job - General by 200

This one has been on the BBC News channel most of the day.

Car dealer Ben Westwood, 33, has the single distinction of being the driver prosecuted for the highest speed on a UK road after trying to escape from a raid in a stolen Audi RS5. The vehicle had previously been modified with a Lamborghini engine and was capable of speeds up to 200mph.

Westwood reached speeds of 180mph on the M6 in January.

Thankfully, Westwood has just been sent down for 9 years. Though we know he won;t serve anywhere near that.
