A MOTORIST who was stopped by police for driving at 122mph on the M5 told officers that he was travelling back from Wales after getting a haircut.
Avon and Somerset Police said they arrested the man after stopping his car near Junction 23 on Thursday.
The 29-year-old was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit through drugs after a roadside test.
Hairdressers opened in Wales on Monday but remain closed in England.
Travelling to Wales for a haircut is not allowed under current lockdown rules in England which require people to stay at home unless it is for a number of permitted reasons such as exercise, outdoor recreation or work.
Hairdressers and barbers are scheduled to open in England on April 12.
