"The drivers excuse was they were late for Vertigo.
"Should have left earlier."
A short time later Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Martin Tweeted: "This is a disgraceful speed.
"@PoliceServiceNI officers detected someone driving at today. 127MPH!
"This driver risked his own life, any passengers he had, & also posed a real risk to the lives of other road users.
"I wonder what the Judge will think of the excuse he offered?"
