AN Indian restaurant chef caught speeding on the A14 at Bottisham escaped a driving ban this week when he told magistrates that his family would suffer if he lost his licence.

He admitted driving at 87mph on October 3 last year, when the speed limit was 70mph. He was fined £60 with £35 costs by Ely magistrates, and three points were endorsed on his licence.
