A motorist has been charged with drink-driving while allegedly speeding at 100 mph.
Police said the driver was arrested after being stopped in roadworks on the A38(M) in Birmingham, where a temporary 30mph limit is currently in place.
Officers said the driver was more than double the legal limit after a reading of 72 microgrammes of alcohol was recorded while in custody.
The driver, who has not been named by police, is due to appear in court on February 10.
