A TORY MP who cut a village off the internet when his car crashed into a telegraph pole has been charged with a series of traffic offences.
Jamie Wallis, 37, is accused of failing to stop in his Mercedes after the nighttime accident.
The Bridgend MP from Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, has also been charged with failing to report the accident, driving carelessly and leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position.
Police said the alleged incident happened in Llanblethian, near Cowbridge, in November.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident at 1:10 a.m.
The mast broke, resulting in a multi-day internet outage.
In March, Mr Wallis became the first MP to come out as transgender.
He wrote: “I’m trans. Or more precisely, I want to be.”
He will appear in court next month.
