Humberside Police Commissioner Caught Speeding

Humberside PCC Matthew Grove

5:17pm 22nd November 2013

Humberside's Police Commissioner's been caught speeding.

Matthew Grove, who covers Pocklington, Market Weighton and Stamford Bridge, was doing 36 miles an hour on a road in Grimsby last month.

In a statement he said:

On Friday 4th October I attended a Question Time event in Grimsby and left around 9.30pm. I subsequently received a letter informing me my speed had been recorded at 36mph on The Peaks Parkway. I admitted being the driver and this week received a further letter with a conditional offer notice to attend a speed awareness course with a fee of £95, which I have accepted.

I have driven over 20,000 miles this year and have a clean driving licence. I am therefore disappointed my driving was not to the required standard on this occasion. I will continue to drive myself to meetings and welcome this opportunity to use the course to reflect on my standard of driving.”
