Rishi Sunak FINED for failing to wear a seatbelt

THE Prime Minister has been fined 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.

It is the second time the Prime Minister has been fined while holding a Govenment position. 

He was fined for attending an illegal lockdown party last year following an investigation by the Met Police. 

At the time, Boris Johnson was also fined, making him the first serving prime minister to be punished for breaking the law while in office. The latest news means Sunak is the second. 

The Tory leader 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 20) issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of fixed penalty.”
