108mph motorist was 'trying to clear diesel filter'

A DEFENCE lawyer said a motorist caught doing 108mph in a 70mph zone was trying to clear a diesel particulate filter but "accelerated far too hard".

Zakari Stuart Walker (23), of Bridgelea Park, Bangor, was detected speeding on July 15 this year.

At Newtownards Magistrates Court he was banned from driving for seven days and fined £300.
