MEREDYDD HUGHES, Britainís most senior traffic policeman, has been slated for wasting court time after he failed to answer a speeding charge yesterday.(25/11/07)

Hughes, 49, the was due to appear at Wrexham Magistratesí Court charged with driving at 90mph in a 60mph zone. Sources say the high-flying copper pleaded for an adjournment as he couldn't find a solicitor to represent him. Funny that.

Supersonic Hughes, who was allegedly caught on camera on the A5, has admitted committing two speeding offences in the past and having six penalty points, despite being one of the UK's strongest critics of speeding motorists.

He's actually the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire!

MEREDYDD HUGHES, the senior police officer who was allegedly caught speeding at over 90mph in a 60mph limt, is to step down as the head of road policy for chief constables.

An police spokesperson said Mr Hughes had been in charge of traffic matters since 2005, and senior officers usually served no more than three years in the post.

She added Mr Hughes was already "in the process of handing over his responsibilities to another chief constable so that he can take on a new role as the association's lead officer for the 2012 Olympic Games in London".

Hughes has been summoned to appear before Wrexham magistrates on 21 November.
