Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a 15-year-old Renault?

In a story that will please Jeremy Clarkson and others suspicious of any road-safety measure, a Romanian man received a speed ticket for driving at 310mph. The 62-year-old had been driving a 15-year-old Renault K65, which he claimed he could barely get to 70mph.

Police suspect that a radar malfunction may have been responsible for the ticket, meaning the driver will not be needing Mr Loophole to explain why he was exceeding the top speed of a Formula One car.
