Two Mid Ulster drivers are now facing court after police caught them driving at over 80mph on the same stretch of road today.

And one of them was an R driver, who legally is not allowed to exceed 45mph.

In pictures online it was revealed that the two drivers were caught doing speeds of 86 and 82mph - but it is not clear how fast the R driver was going.

“Rush Hour in County Tyrone!” Officers said on their PSNI Cookstown Facebook page.

“Road Policing officers made these two detections on the same road within a few minutes of each other this afternoon, one from a R driver!

“Both drivers will have to explain themselves to a judge now. ‪#‎keepingpeoplesafe”
