Dominic Raab : PM made 'inadvertent mistake' and Zahawi has 'been clear' over taxes paid.

The Deputy Prime Minister, Dominic Raab, says the Prime Minister made an "inadvertent mistake" by not wearing a seatbelt for which he's received a penalty fine.

The Justice Secretary said it "shouldn't have happened" but Rishi Sunak was "committed to serving the people of the country".

He also defended Nadhim Zahawi, saying the Conservative Party Chair had "been clear" that he had "paid all the tax owed" and nothing was outstanding.
