According to Sir Ed’s letter of explanation, he had attempted to pay a speeding ticket issued by Bedfordshire Police after being caught speeding near Caddington on the M1. However, due to a “genuine oversight,” he inadvertently failed to provide his driving license details. As a result, the matter was brought before magistrates in March.
