Lancashire Constabulary have given Rishi Sunak a fixed penalty notice for failing to wear seatbelt. He becomes the second PM to have been found to have broken the law while in office.

The police service said last night that it would “look into” a video of Mr Sunak not wearing a seatbelt in a moving car after the PM was forced into an embarrassing apology.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister, who posted the clip on social media, said it “was a brief error of judgement”.

He said: “He accepts it as mistake. And as I say, he apologises for it.

“The PM believes everyone should wear a seatbelt and once again, I think I’ve made clear that there was an error or judgment. He removed it for a short period of time to film a clip which you’ve seen but he accepts that’s a mistake.”

Mr Sunak uploaded the video, understood to have been filmed in Lancashire, to his official Instagram account, which has 1.3million followers.

Labour slammed Mr Sunak for posting a video of himself where he is be not wearing a seatbelt in a moving car.
