Rishi Sunak FINED for not wearing seatbelt during Lancashire trip
Rishi Sunak previously apologised for the 'brief error of judgment'
The Prime Minister has been issued with a fixed penalty notice by police for failing to wear a seatbelt while filming a social media clip in the back of a moving car.
Rishi Sunak previously apologised for the “brief error of judgment” as he carried out a series of visits in Lancashire on Thursday.
Mr Sunak was spotted not wearing his seatbelt in an Instagram video he filmed to promote levelling-up funding during a visit to the North of England.
Lancashire Police said: “You will be aware that a video has been circulating on social media showing an individual failing to wear a seat belt while a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire.
“After looking into this matter, we have today (Friday, January 20th) issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of fixed penalty.”
The Prime Minister will pay the fine issued by Lancashire Constabulary and “fully accepts this was a mistake and has apologised”, a No10 spokesperson said.
