A MAN accused of aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving who is alleged to have driven at over 140mph is due to have his case committed to crown court.

Christopher Kennedy is accused of aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving, using a motor vehicle without insurance and driving while disqualified.
