Kate Hoey fined for running red light


Former Sports Minister Kate Hoey MP has been fined for running a red light.

The Northern Ireland-born Labour MP for Vauxhall has pleaded guilty to running a red light and was fined £240 at City of London Magistrates Court.

The MP drove her Mini through the red signal while on the Victoria Embankment by the River Thames in central London last July.

In 2003, the MP branded cyclists as "Lycra louts" who, ignoring red lights, were the real menace on UK roads.
