"Having just received a speeding fine from South Wales Police for going at 35mph in a 30mph zone - which was quite shocking to me this morning, I might add - may I say that this news of electrification is a great encouragement to me to use the railway in future."
The MP admitted the offence to his Twitter followers on the social network this morning.
