A motorist caught speeding at 140mph with a child passenger in the front seat has been banned from driving for three years.
Mert Tanay, 26, from Enfield, north London, was pulled over at Junction 9 (Ashford) on the M20 coastbound carriageway, at about 10.30am on Sunday 28 September 2014.
Officers travelling in an unmarked police car had been monitoring the speed of another vehicle when Tanay overtook them in his black BMW 323 at approximately 90mph.
His speed soon increased to 115mph as he weaved in and out of traffic, before slowing to 90mph and then increasingly rapidly to 140mph.
When the car was pulled over it was discovered that a six-year-old boy was sitting in the front passenger seat.
Tanay was also sentenced to 50 hoursâ€™ unpaid work when he appeared at Canterbury Crown Court on Thursday 19 March, having previously admitted the charge of dangerous driving.
