Driver caught doing 122mph after travelling to Wales for a haircut

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.
