Matthew Brooks was driving a BMW on the M3 at Otterbourne when he was caught at 70mph. 

A temporary 50mph speed restriction was in place at the time. 

The 44-year-old was travelling southbound between junctions 11 and 12 when he was spotted by an automatic speed camera.

He was also given four points on his licence and must pay £110 court costs plus a £666 surcharge. 

This must be paid in full by June 27.
