A Porsche driver "put lives at risk" by passing novice motorcyclists and pedestrians at speeds of up to 113 mph, a road safety group has said.

David Richard Judd, 30, from Doncaster, was caught on camera on the A631, near Market Rasen, last May.

At a hearing at Lincoln Magistrates' Court he was banned for six months and ordered to pay fines and costs of £815.

Mr Judd, who had been driving home from Skegness, was found guilty of careless driving and speeding.

But John Siddle, from the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, said he was "very lucky".

"Given that there were pedestrians and novice motorcyclists using the road anything could have happened," he said.

He added that only 10 out of 45,000 people caught speeding in Lincolnshire last year were travelling at more than 100 mph.
