Jag-driving pensioner busted at 236km/h

A PENSIONER on his way back from a round of golf was caught speeding in his Jaguar sports car at 147mph (236km/h).

Owen Swift, 68, was followed by police for almost six kilometres before they managed to catch up with him.

When he finally stopped, the company director refused to get out of his Jaguar XKR coupe and denied he was going too fast.

He disputed the speed gun readings and criticised officers for not letting him off.

"You can't have got me,' he said. "You were on the other side of the carriageway and crash barrier."
