A DRIVER was caught travelling at more than 70mph on a New Forest country road.

Now police have warned others to slow down.

The motorist was stopped on Thursday morning by New Forest Heart Cops.

A spokesman said: "This driver's day didn't start well - clocked at 71mph across the B3078

"Animals are on the forest roads day and night and sometimes the Police are too. Slow down - it’s 40mph for a reason."
