England footballer Nathan Redmond has been slapped with a £1,000 fine after being caught driving 30mph over the speed limit in his £80,000 Range Rover.

The Premier League star, who plays for Southampton, was clocked doing 71mph in a 40mph zone in his blue 2015 Land Rover just three miles from the Saints' home ground.

The 23-year-old, who joined Southampton last summer in a £12million deal, risked a ban after being caught by a speed camera, but he escaped with just six points on his licence and the maximum fine you can receive for a non-motorway speeding offence.
