A man was caught driving at 127mph while a child was in his car, police have said.

The speeding 47-year-old was found to be travelling with a seven-year-old girl when he was stopped in Aberdeenshire.

Grampian Police said he was one of a number of drivers reported for speeding over the weekend.

The man has been reported for dangerous driving after he was stopped on Sunday on the A90 Aberdeen to Peterhead road near Blackdog, which has a 70mph limit.

Grampian Police Sergeant Neil Morrison said: "Drivers and passengers of all ages need to think about their obligations while using the road system and take responsibility for their actions.

"If they choose to ignore the safety advice then there is a very real likelihood that they will find themselves being reported for bad driving and potentially facing a period of time without a driver's licence."
