LONDON (Reuters Life!) - A senior executive at a speed camera firm was banned from driving for six months in Britain on Wednesday after admitting speeding at more than 100 mph on a road with a 70 mph limit.

Tom Riall, a divisional chief executive at Serco, was clocked doing 103 mph in his blue Volvo near Newmarket, Suffolk, just before 1 p.m. on January 4.

Riall was sentenced at a hearing at Sudbury Magistrates' Court, the Press Association news agency reported.

Riall is head of Serco's Home Affairs division, which has installed speed cameras at around 4,500 sites around Britain since 1992.
