A millionaire caught speeding in Switzerland has been hit with a record-breaking £182,000 fine.
Judges at the cantonal court in St Gallen arrived at the sum by basing it on his estimated personal wealth of over £16 million.
The court said the repeat offender drove up to 35 mph faster than the 50 mph limit.
The unidentified driver can still appeal the decision to the Swiss supreme court.
The fine was more than twice the previous Swiss record.
