DO YOU KNOW THE PHANTOM SPEEDING BIKER?
Police are hunting a biker who has evaded a string of speeding fines by covering his number plate with his hand.
The motorbike rider has been caught on camera numerous times breaking speed limits on a Yamaha 125cc, but has so far avoided a fine on every occasion. Police in Plymouth, Devon, believe the rider knows where all the speed cameras are and deliberately conceals his registration plate with his hand, (THE DEVIOUS BASTARD) and what is thought to be a learner drive plate whenever he speeds past them.
So far Devon police have only spent £161,000 in trying to hunt down the 'PHANTOM' as he is now being called. A recent murder enquiry however, recently had to be scaled back, as the police did not have enough resources to investigate it. "The Phantom must be caught" a police spokesman told Dark Lochnagar, "the cameras are there for a reason and we can't have people speeding and getting away with it".
