SNP Councillor Jim Finn has reportedly received a £100 fixed penalty for crashing into family car in Clydebank last week.

It was alleged in a previous facebook post that Jim Finn, a councillor on the West Dunbartonshire council, had crashed into a parked car during a "road rage fight".

The facebook post reads:

A police spokeswoman said: “I can confirm that a 63-year-old man was issued with a fixed penalty notice in connection with a road traffic offence.”

The Scottish National Party are not taking any further action against the councillor.

A SNP spokesman said: “Cllr Finn paid a small fine for a minor traffic incident, and no further action is being taken.”
