A Porsche driver who rigged his car with a 'laser jammer' to stop police speed guns taking an accurate reading has been fined £5,000.

Grant Robert Faulkner, 54, was behind the wheel of the 4x4 when mobile speed cameras twice tried to clock how fast he was going. 

But due to interference generated by the jammer, the safety camera could not determine at what speed it was travelling.

North Yorkshire Police launched an investigation into the incident and Faulkner's Porsche Cayenne was seized and examined.

Officers discovered a laser jamming device below the number plate which blocked camera signals and enabled him to speed without being clocked.
