Bans and fines for 250 Birmingham road racers

More than 250 "outrageous and illegal" racers, who reached up to 120mph on a busy Birmingham A-road, have been given fines and driving bans.

A camera was hidden in road signals on the A47 in Nechells in a West Midlands Police operation last year.

Police said the footage helped to secure individual driving bans of up to two years and fines of up to £2,000.

The operation was launched following complaints about offences committed at night and on bank holidays.
