A SUSPECTED speeder is set to appear in court after his red Lamborghini was caught travelling at more than 130mph.

The 40-year-old man has been reported for driving offences after his vehicle was clocked at break-neck speed in Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

A police traffic officer pulled the super car over as the driver entered Ponteland.

He will now have to explain his actions to magistrates.

Northumbria Police said: "There is absolutely no excuse to be travelling at such excessive speed and if we come across anyone behaving in a similar manner then you will face criminal charges."
