The Archbishop of Canterbury has been fined for speeding.

Just days after the King's coronation, the Archbishop of Canterbury was convicted of speeding.

Justin Welby, 67, was fined £510 in total for exceeding a 20mph limit near Lambeth Palace on October 2, last year. He was also given three penalty points after being caught speeding in his Volkswagen Golf on the A3036 Albert Embankment by a speed camera.

He admitted the offence in writing and was sentenced at a private magistrates' court hearing. Welby pleaded guilty online on Wednesday, May 10, the same day he appeared at the House of Lords to condemn the UK government's Illegal Migration Bill.


Under UK law, if a motorist gets 12 or more points within three years, they can be banned from driving.
