Conservative MP Jamie Wallis has admitted he was involved in an “accident” and is “assisting police with their inquiries”.

It comes after South Wales Police confirmed officers were called to an incident in which a car collided with a lamppost at Church Road in Llanblethian, Vale of Glamorgan, on Sunday 28 November shortly after 01:10 GMT.

A 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit and has been released under investigation.

South Wales Police said there were no reported injuries.

A spokesperson for Mr Wallis, who has been the MP for Bridgend in Wales since the 2019 election, said: “Jamie was involved in an accident and is assisting police with their enquiries.

In a statement on his Facebook page on Saturday, Mr Wallis postponed a surgery with constituents until the New Year after testing positive for COVID-19.
