York & North Yorkshire

A biker is recorded as travelling 120mph in a police campaign targeting speeding motorcyclists in North Yorkshire.

Speeding bikers on North Yorkshire roads were targeted by police in an effort to cut road deaths.

Officers stopped 46 motorcyclists on Sunday, with one rider recorded as travelling at 120mph (193km/h).

Patrols were carried out in a range of marked and unmarked vehicles on roads across the county.

Three car drivers also received tickets for speeding. The operation was a joint initiative between North Yorkshire Police and Cumbria Police.

Traffic Sgt Pete Stringer said: "Hopefully our early intervention will help to reduce the number of dead or seriously injured motorcyclists on our roads."
