A suspected drink-driver was clocked speeding at an "unbelievable" 132mph (212km/h), police have said. The Ford Focus driver was stopped on a section of the A421 near Bedford at about 21:10 BST on Thursday. Police posted an image of the speed gun display on Twitter after the man was arrested. Officers said it was a "miracle" the motorist, who was found to be over the legal alcohol limit, "didn't kill himself or someone else". The post drew a number of responses from shocked members of the public.
