Deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman is currently a subject of a police investigation into a minor car crash.
The allegations relate to an incident which took place on July 3rd in Dulwich, south London, but which has only just come to light now.
Ms Harman is alleged to have driven off after hitting a parked car. It is rumoured the cabinet minister was talking on her mobile phone at the time of the incident.
Police today confirmed they are investigating the allegations. A police spokesman told politics.co.uk: “We can confirm we are investigating a minor traffic collision in Dulwich.
“We are in the process of taking statements from all the parties concerned.
“No injuries were reported and inquiries are continuing”.
Ms Harman was alleged by a witness to have wound down her window and said: “I’m Harriet Harman – you know where you can get hold of me,” before driving away.
Driving while using a mobile phone can carry a maximum six-month jail sentence.
Ms Harman has been unavailable for comment so far.
