Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson has received the first points on his licence in 30 years after getting caught speeding.

The 54-year-old said he was travelling from Whitby to London when he was caught on camera.

Clarkson said he was driving too fast to take a speed awareness course instead of the points on his licence.

Writing in his Sun newspaper column, he said: "Last month I wrote in a blind fury about how many speed cameras I'd encountered on a drive from Whitby to London.

"Well, it seems one of them got to me.

"Sadly, I was going too quickly for the speed awareness course to be an option. Which means I'm getting some points on my licence. My first in 30 years."

In 2008, Clarkson admitted speeding at 188mph on public roads.

When asked in an interview "what's the fastest you have ever driven?" he replied: "On the public roads...186."

He said: "I got a great speeding ticket. I think it was 186 in the Limehouse Link. Well, somebody did. Obviously it might not have been me."

Jeremy added: "Nick [Freeman, Clarkson's lawyer] is wonderful. He gets you off everything. Well, doesn't get you off; show's you're not guilty."
