The Prime Minister previously apologized for the “brief error of judgment” as he made a series of visits to Lancashire on Thursday.

Mr Sunak was spotted in an Instagram video he was not wearing to promote equalization of funding during a visit to Lancashire.

Failure to wear a seat belt in a moving car is an offense punishable by a fine of up to £500.

In a statement, Lancaster Constabulary said: “You will know that there is video circulating on social media showing a person not wearing a seat belt as a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire.

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

It is the Prime Minister’s second fine. He was fined last year in connection with a birthday party he and Boris Johnson attended on June 19, 2020 – a party first reported by Latest Page News in January – when he was chancellor.

On Thursday, a Downing Street spokesman said Mr Sunak “fully accept that this was a mistake and apologize”. “The Prime Minister believes everyone should wear a seat belt,” the announcer said briefly to film a clip you saw, but he accepts that was a mistake.

Downing Street has so far declined to comment on the latest development.

There are some exceptions to not wearing a seat belt, including when a car is used for police, fire and rescue services, and for certified medical purposes.

Downing Street said it does not believe there is an exception for traveling in a ministerial car.

It was one of the biggest news stories of our time – and it’s still not over. So what did Boris Johnson know about the infamous Downing Street parties? With fresh revelations from our source number 10, in their own words, listen to the inside story…
