Jail for 101mph speed fine liar
A senior manager at BMW's Oxford plant has been jailed after pleading guilty to a speeding offence and trying to claim his son was behind the wheel.

Thomas Moser, 48, of Oxford, was caught by a speed camera in May doing 101mph in a 50mph zone on the eastern bypass.

Despite photo evidence Moser, the finance director at BMW's Cowley plant, said his 19-year-old son was driving.

He was given six weeks in jail and a 12-month ban after admitting speeding and perjury before Banbury magistrates.
