A motorist on the Frosses Road was allegedly detected doing one of the highest speeds in Northern Ireland this year – 122mph.

Ballymena Magistrates Court heard that Thomas Angus Weir (48), with an address at Meadow Court in Bushmills, was charged with speeding in a 70mph zone on April 20.

The case was adjourned to July.

A guilty or not guilty plea has not yet been indicated.

No further details were given in court about the alleged incident.

However, the charge is believed to be connected to an incident at the Frosses Road near Ballymena over the Easter weekend.

In April this year the PSNI Road Policing Facebook page posted a picture of an alleged speed recording of 122mph.

The Facebook post said: “Driver detected earlier this evening on Frosses Road, claimed he wasn’t paying full attention to his speed!!”
