An arrest has been made against a Tory MP for driving after an accident with a lamppost late at night.

According to The Mail on Sunday, Bridgend MP Jamie Wallis has been placed under police investigation for a fatal road accident that occurred last month in quiet villages.

Mr Wallis, who was elected in 2019, was arrested after police were called to the ‘single-vehicle collision’ just after 1.10am on Sunday, November 28. Later, he was released. According to police, there weren’t any injuries.

Yesterday, however, local sources in the village of Llanblethian, near Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan, said that Mr Wallis’s Mercedes hit the wooden lamp post – which doubles as a telegraph pole – so hard that it snapped at its base.

This caused some residents to lose internet access until the pole was repaired earlier this month.

Wallis’ spokesperson confirmed that Mr Wallis was arrested for the incident, but said that he had been released from custody without being charged.

He said: ‘Jamie was involved in an accident and is assisting police with their inquiries.’

South Wales Police said: ‘A 37-year-old man from Cowbridge was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit.

‘He has been released under investigation.’
