Three drivers filmed speeding at more than 130mph during a street race have been warned to expect jail terms.

Amar Paul, Tejinder Bhuee and Zafar Iqbal were caught on an unmarked patrol car's dashboard-camera during a campaign targeting reckless road-users on the A38 near Sutton Coldfield in March.

Paul, from Berrow Drive in Edgbaston, Birmingham; Bhuee, of Fitzroy Avenue, Harborne, Birmingham, and Iqbal, of Victoria Road, Oldbury, West Midlands, admitted charges of dangerous driving and street racing at a previous hearing.

All three men were due to be sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday but the case was adjourned after their barristers asked for pre-sentence reports.

The court was told Paul, 27, Bhuee, 24, and 33-year-old Iqbal were ordered not to breach an injunction banning car-cruising in April after a hearing at Birmingham's Civil Justice Centre.

Granting the defendants bail until July 24, Recorder John Edwards told the men: "I take a particularly serious view of this, in my judgment, unless there is some great compelling mitigation, this sort of driving calls for immediate custody.

"These are three young men all with effectively good character, and as I see it the first port of call is immediate custody.

"Were I to sentence you today without a report, each of you would be receiving a custodial sentence."
