170mph Youtube speeder caught

Police in Scotland have found a rider who posted video clips of himself doing 170mph on the road.

The unnamed man posted several clips including ones showing him doing wheelies on a Yamaha R1 and riding at up to 170mph on a Fireblade along the East Lothian coast.

Police believe they have identified the rider as a 34-year-old from Edinburgh. His name will not be released until he appears in court.

The case comes just a week after charges were dropped against Jeremy Parrott, who was arrested after a separate video emerged on the internet, also showing a speeding bike. The case against him was dropped because police could not prove he was the rider of the bike.

Before you start searching, police have already had the latest Scottish video clips removed from YouTube.
