A motorist clocked at 103mph claimed he didn’t know how fast he was driving because he’s dyslexic.

Matthew Cook was spotted weaving in and out of traffic as he sped along the A27 between Falmer and Hollingbury, Brighton.

Witnesses reported the 40-year-old, who is terminally ill, was smoking a cigarette and gesticulating rudely to other drivers while under and overtaking other vehicles.

Yesterday Recorder Christopher Morris-Coole banned Cook, who admitted a count of dangerous driving, from driving for three years and ordered him to take an extended driving test.
