They followed and stopped the vehicle and the driver will now be summoned to court.
Hertfordshire Police said: “Speeding is one of the main causes of deaths on our roads and is part of the ‘Fatal Five’. Stopping distances increase considerably with higher speeds and at 124mph, there is almost no chance of stopping in time if an unexpected event occurs.”
They added: “Anyone caught travelling at those speeds can expect a court summons and a ban.”
