The Prime Minister has been issued with a “conditional offer of fixed penalty” by police after failing to wear a seat belt in a moving car.
Lancashire Constabulary made the announcement on Friday after footage of Rishi Sunak promoting his levelling-up funding shot in the back of a moving car was uploaded to Instagram.
Sunak, right, said he wanted to “build a future of optimism and pride in people’s lives” in the video after announcing ten projects in Scotland are to share almost £180 million of UK Government cash.
However Sunak did not appear to be wearing a seat belt in the footage.
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.”
