He was also ordered to pay £500 in costs in the next three months.

On 8 June 2020, Hussain was filmed driving on the A41 dual carriageway in the Aylesbury area between Aylesbury and Aston Clinton, driving at speeds up to 149mph.

The Aylesbury Stronghold team located this video and charged Hussain with dangerous driving on December 23, 2020.

Investigating officer PC Ben McNeill, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “The manner of Hussain’s driving was completely unacceptable, and the speeds he reached caused significant danger to both himself and other road users.

“Hussain had a passenger filming this driving on a phone, and when the footage was located, we charged him with the offence of dangerous driving.

“Driving at excessive speed is one of the fatal four, and Hussain’s actions were extremely dangerous.

“I am pleased that he was convicted of the offence and has now been disqualified from driving and sentenced accordingly.

“We will not tolerate this type of behaviour on our roads, and will always seek to prosecute offenders and put them before the courts.”
