Quote of the day

"Leadbitter received a £250 fine, £250 prosecution costs plus a £15 victim's surcharge. He was also banned from driving for 14 days, so should he be chased by any imaginary Newcastle fans this fortnight he will have to make his escape on foot."

The conclusion to the Guardian's report on Mackem midfielder Grant Leadbitter's prosecution for driving at 112mph.

Sir Alex Ferguson famously got off a charge of driving on the motorway hard shoulder by claiming he was suffering from "severe diarrhoea" and desperately needed to find a toilet. Sounds like Leadbitter was in danger of soiling himself too...
