A Cardigan man was caught speeding at 76mph in a 40mph limit, a court has heard.

John Williams, aged 49, of The Red Lion, Pwllhai, was recorded breaking the speed limit on the A487 at Blaenplwyf at 9.14pm on May 11.

Williams did not attend Aberystwyth magistrates court on Wednesday, but his solicitor Alan Lewis entered a guilty plea on his behalf, and the case was adjourned until September 25.
