Police: Speeding without lights and sirens?

Hi all

Just wanted a bit of clarification on this one. I was in a narrow middle lane last night doing around 70(ish), there was a car to my left and nothing behind me.

Next thing a car goes flying past and completely shakes my car, I look in the corner of my eye there is a BMW 3 series marked police car going past. The car was whistling as it passed me!

Now I didn't see him coming behind me, and I didn't see him much in front of me either, this is on a complete straight m-way. I reckon the car must have been doing well over 130.

Now am I wrong or do police have to have their sirens or lights to do this kind of speed?

Its quite scary when you're driving home to your bed and not expecting it!
