The No Excuse team reported:

“We had a fairly quiet evening despite the amount of traffic in the area.

“The vehicle was stopped for doing 45 mph in a 30 on the High Street in Swanage. His insurance policy covered him for social, domestic and personal uses only but he was using it for business purposes.
