An MP has been fined for littering in the city he represents.

Labour member for Coventry South, Jim Cunningham, received the fine "some weeks ago" for dropping a cigarette butt at the city's railway station, a spokesman confirmed.

The spokesman added: "He was rushing for a train, dropped the cigarette and subsequently paid the fine."

The penalty for littering is usually £100, reduced to £50 if paid within two weeks.
