A former British policeman who caused misery for motorists by tripling the number of speed cameras in the UK was apprehended in New Zealand for having an expired registration, the MailOnline has reported.

Richard Brunstorm, who was chief constable of North Wales and was also head of road policing for the Association of Police Officers from 2001 to 2009, bought speeding tickets to a record high of 1.7million in England and Wales in 2004.

However, in a well-timed taste of his own medicine, the former cop had to pay out the equivalent of £100 for his driving errors in Auckland – just like the thousands before him who had suffered his wrath. Now that’s karma.
