A groom heading to his wedding was pulled over by police after being caught driving at 121mph on a motorway.

Wiltshire Police Specialist Ops tweeted a picture of a silver BMW next to a police car along with an image of the radar gun displaying the speed.

The accompanying tweet posted on 11 June read: "Usually, the bride is always late. Unfortunately, this groom has some explaining to do after being caught at 121mph on the M4 on the way to his wedding."

The groom's troubles were not confined to his heavy-footed use of the accelerator, however, with officers also revealing he was travelling with a tyre in an illegal condition.

"A rear nearside tyre with cord exposed topped this stop off," the force said.

The police signed off the tweet with the hashtag #donttellthebride.

Wiltshire Police confirmed the groom was later collected by members of the wedding party to take him to the ceremony.

He will appear in court at a later date.
