Loc: Birkenhead, Wirral.
A driver was clocked speeding in her ageing Austin Maestro at an amazing 480 miles an hour.
Joanna James, 28, was sent a fixed penalty ticket after a drive on a 30mph road in Bridgend, south Wales, in her 14-year-old G-registration runabout, bought for just 100.

Ms James, from Port Talbot, was amazed because she knew her car could not barely manage 48 mph - let alone 480mph.

The speed is faster quicker than supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis, and twice the take-off speed of a Boeing 737 jet.

The mother-of-three, from Sandfields, said: "I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the ticket said I was doing 480mph. I can barely reach 48 miles an hour in my old car - never mind that sort of speed.

I have no faith in speed cameras at all

Driver Joanna James
"The ticket even said they had photographic evidence of me on a speed camera - but I would have been just a blur like a bullet flying past."

Ms, James, who bought the silver Maestro four months ago, added : "It's ridiculous. My battered old car starts to shake and shudder if I even try to put my foot down.

"A lot of our friends think it is funny - but I have got no points on my licence and I want to keep it that way.

The South Wales Safety Camera Partnership - run by three police forces in Wales - blamed the ticket on a clerical error.

A spokeswoman said: "We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. We will be sending her an amended ticket for 48mph."

Ms James is planning to appeal against the ticket with its 60 fine and three penalty points.

"I was doing 32 to 35mph because I was concentrating on the signs to find my way home," she said.

"And if they think they're going to send me a ticket for 48mph, they can think again," she added.

"If they can get it wrong once they can get it wrong again. I have no faith in speed cameras at all."
