England striker Peter Crouch has been slapped with a six month driving ban after he was caught speeding twice in less than a month.

The lanky 31-year-old Stoke City star was caught on a speed camera travelling at 69mph in a 40mph zone as he drove his flash £30,000 Range Rover on the M42/M6 Toll Road near Curdworth, Warks., on March 6.

Weeks later he was clocked driving at 70mph on the same stretch of road on April 25.

The court heard he already had nine points on his licence before he was caught speeding in his.

Crouch, who did not attend the hearing, was banned for six months and fined £1,300.
