Rishi Sunak was fined by police after failing to buckle up in the car

the prime minister was issued a “conditional offer of a fixed penalty” and fined by Lancashire Police after failing to wear a seat belt in the back seat of a moving car.

The incident happened when Rishi Sunak filmed a social media clip while being driven in a vehicle.

A spokesman for Number 10 said the Prime Minister would pay the fine and “fully accepts that this was a mistake and has apologized”.

The illegal activity was reported to the local police soon after, and the Prime Minister apologized Instagram Video.

In a statement, Downing St commented on the incident that the Prime Minister made a “brief misjudgment” by removing the clip’s securing device.

The spokesman said Mr Sunak “fully accepts that this was a mistake and apologizes.

“The PM believes everyone should wear a seatbelt.

“It was a misjudgment, he removed it for a short time to shoot a clip you saw but he accepts that was a mistake.”

In the original video, Rishi Sunak addresses the camera while police motorcycles can be seen alongside the vehicle.

Lancashire Constabulary said a 42-year-old man from London was issued a conditional offer of a fixed sentence after a social media video circulated online.

In a statement, the force said: “You will know that video has been circulating on social media showing a person not wearing a seat belt as a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire.

“Following consideration of this matter, we issued a conditional offer of a fixed sentence to a 42-year-old man from London today (Friday 20 January).”

However, a Tory MP slammed the complaint and inquiry as “politically motivated”, adding that he believed the police were wasting their time “scrutinizing” the Prime Minister.

Blackpool MP Scott Benton said: “Your time is better spent investigating serious crimes affecting my constituents.”

Mr Benton added: “The vast majority of people would think that politically motivated complaints about a seat belt are not a good use of frontline resources.”
