A man and a woman in their 20s were reportedly clocked speeding at more than 100mph past the Kingston Interchange in Glasgow.

A 21-year-old woman was driving a Mercedes A Class and a 24-year-old man was driving a red Mitsubishi Evo when police claim they were spotted by road officers at speeds of up to 110mph on the M74 on Thursday night.

They have both been charged after being stopped at around 11.50pm by officers from the Road Policing Division carrying out patrols.

Chief inspector Darren Faulds said: “The dangers of speeding are well known and can have devastating consequences.

“It is never appropriate or acceptable to drive at such high speeds and we will continue to carry out patrols in order to improve driver behaviour as part of our commitment to reducing deaths and serious injuries on Scotland’s roads.”
