Burnley cricketer James Anderson has been fined after he was caught speeding in his Jaguar.

The 31-year-old England fast bowler, who is currently in Australia preparing for the Ashes, was fined £265 after breaking the speed limit earlier this year. He had admitted the offence.

Stockport Magistrates’ Court heard he was driving at 58 m.p.h. in a 50 m.p.h. zone in Cheadle Hulme in April.

He was also ordered to pay £35 costs and a £26 victim surcharge and three penalty points were added to his licence.
