As the video was posted on social media, users were quick to notice that the premier of Indian origin was not buckled up and so was the Lancashire Police.
The police said it had issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of a fixed penalty. On the other side, the prime minister’s office said Sunak “fully accepts this was a mistake and has apologised”, adding that he would pay the fine.
