A stretch of the M4 near Bristol has recorded some of the fastest speeding motorists in the region.

A Freedom of Information request shows that four drivers were found to be travelling at more than 130 miles per hour between the M32 and the Almondsbury interchange (J20 - J19).

The top speed recorded was 144mph - almost double the 70mph speed limit.

Dorset Police have also reported some high-speed drivers. One incident on the A35 Puddletown Bypass saw a driver reach a limit of 118 mph.

Even more worryingly, the county also reported three drivers who were speeding at more than 75 mph in 30 mph zones.

A woman killed after a lorry overturned on the M32 in Bristol has been named as "selfless, loyal and loving" Lorraine Mckeag.

Mrs Mckeag, 60, lived in the Somerset village of Dundry with her husband, whom she cared for after a stroke, and lost in November 2012.

In an emotional tribute released today she is described by her family as kind, popular and active in her community.

Her son James is running the Paris, Manchester and London marathons in memory of his mother, to raise money for the Stroke Association.

Donations can be made here.

Lorraine will be missed immensely by her son, sister, family and friends and will be remembered as a wonderful cook, who would welcome anyone and everyone into both her home and life with open arms.

The most selfless, loyal and loving character imaginable, she tackled life's difficulties with a rare and at times unbelievable determination, always putting the happiness and wellbeing of others above her own.

To know her was an absolute joy, and it will bring sadness to the many people around the world who had the privilege of knowing her.
