Footballer Joe Cole found guilty of speeding in Surrey

Joe Cole Joe Cole was sent off in his first Premier League game for Liverpool on Sunday

England and Liverpool footballer Joe Cole has been warned he could lose his driving licence after being found guilty of speeding at 105mph.

The 28-year-old was caught was driving his Audi A4 on a dual carriageway in Claygate, Surrey, in a 70mph zone.

Cole, who did not attend court, had denied speeding on the A3 Esher bypass.

District Judge Clive Wiles is due to pass sentence later and warned that Cole, who already has six points on his licence, could face disqualification.

Dean George, representing the former West Ham and Chelsea midfielder, claimed in court the speed gun had not been used correctly, producing an inaccurate reading.

Andrew Mitchell, who has since retired from Surrey Police, used the laser speed gun that recorded the incident on November 19 last year - when Cole, who was a member of England's World Cup squad, was still playing for Chelsea.

He told the court he had seen the car being driven towards him at 1255 GMT that day.

He said: "I estimated it to be in excess of the 70mph speed limit. My estimate was confirmed when the laser, when shone on the vehicle, recorded a speed of 105mph."
