The Right Honorable Ed Balls, MP was fined £900 and handed five penalty after he failed to stop following a car accident in which he bumped into another car in his constituency in West Yorkshire.

It is not known whether the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband, will take any action, but today’s fine is likely to add to the pressure already being brought by some Labour activists to sack Balls in order to boost Labour’s chances in the next general election.
