Footballer Kieron Dyer was banned from the road for six months after he was caught speeding.

The West Ham and former England player already had three points on his licence when his Mercedes was clocked travelling at 95mph on a dual carriageway.



Dyer, 31, did not attend court for the hearing but was found guilty in his absence of speeding, failing to provide information on the identity of a driver and failing to produce a driving licence.



The player was driving along the A12 at Great Wenham, near Capel St Mary, on the morning of April 3 when he broke the national speed limit, Lowestoft Magistrates' Court, in Suffolk, heard.



He then failed to name the driver of his vehicle, court documents revealed.



Dyer, of West Bergholt in Colchester, Essex, was fined £1,050 and ordered to pay £1,015 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge yesterday.



Eleven points were added to his licence, meaning he passed the 12-point threshold which leads to disqualification.
