Bridgend Conservative MP Dr Jamie Wallis MP was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit last month following an incident at Llanblethian near Cowbridge.

The incident happened at around 1:10 am on 29 November after a car collided with a lamppost in the Vale of Glamorgan. Jamie Wallis has been released by South Wales Police under investigation and has not been charged.

A spokesperson for Dr Wallis said: “Jamie was involved in an accident and is assisting police with their inquiries. While this is ongoing he will not be commenting,” 

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.”

A post on Mr Wallis’s Facebook page said a planned surgery with constituents on Saturday had to be postponed until the New Year as he had tested positive for Covid.
