Rishi Sunak says he ‘deeply regrets’ failing to wear seatbelt

Rishi Sunak has said “I regret deeply” the decision not to wear a seatbelt last week while travelling as a passenger in a moving car. Lancashire Constabulary on Friday announced it was fining the Prime Minister after he was spotted not wearing his seatbelt in an Instagram video filmed to promote levelling up funding during a visit to the North West a day earlier. Mr Sunak has agreed to pay the fine and No 10 issued an apology on his behalf last week.
