Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been fined £600 and given six points on his driving licence after he was caught speeding at 104mph on the M1 in the second week of lockdown. 

The Manchester United defender was travelling into London on April 1 when he was stopped in his £90,000 G-wagon on the motorway which is a 70mph zone. 

Wan-Bissaka was given the punishment at a magistrates court in Bromley, with the right-back asked to pay additional costs and fees of £160.

PC Geoffrey Green, who confirmed that there were passengers in the car with Wan-Bissaka, said in a statement: ‘The vehicle was travelling away from me at a speed I estimated to be in excess of (70mph).’

The officer revealed that Wan-Bissaka made no comment following his caution, with the 22-year-old pleading guilty for the charge in writing.

The defender’s case was dealt with last month under the single justice procedure.

One month after Wan-Bissaka’s incident, the Metropolitan Police pleaded with the public to stop speeding following a surge in offences during the coronavirus lockdown.

Wan-Bissaka is currently training with Manchester United after missing out on a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the October triple-header.

The right-back is behind Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier in the England pecking order while Reece James was included in the Three Lions squad instead of the Manchester United man following a couple of drop-outs. 

Wan-Bissaka has made three appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season, with his most recent match being the 6-1 thrashing by Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
