Lord Heseltine fined for knocking cyclist off bike
Lord Heseltine has been fined £5,000 for knocking a cyclist off his bike.
Heseltine, who had been driving a green Jaguar car, pulled out of a lane and into the path of the cyclist on the B4525 near Thenford, Northamptonshire, on 19 June.
The male cyclist had multiple injuries, including a broken arm and shattered knees which required plates and pins.
On Thursday at Northampton Magistrates' Court the 83-year-old peer pleaded guilty to careless driving.
Heseltine was also ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge and £85 costs, a magistrates' court clerk confirmed.
He was also handed five penalty points on his driving licence.
