A DAMAGE and insurance surveyor, who has been working with flood victims in Hull and Doncaster, may lose his job after being caught driving at 100mph on the A14 near Exning.

Ely magistrates banned Michael Paul from driving for eight weeks after he admitted exceeding the 70mph speed limit.

Paul, 44, of Tallis Road, Basildon, regularly drives 1,000 miles during his working week.

He gave no reason for his speeding, and was fined £265, ordered to pay £35 costs and told he could go to prison if he is caught driving within the next eight weeks.
