British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak

UK PM Rishi Sunak fined for not wearing seatbelt in back of car

Lancashire Police said it had issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of a fixed penalty.

No 10 said Sunak "fully accepts this was a mistake and has apologised", adding that he would pay the fine.

BBC reports passengers caught failing to wear a seat belt when one is available can be fined £100 ($190).

This can increase to £500 ($957) if the case goes to court.

The prime minister was in Lancashire when the video was filmed, during a trip across the north of England.
