Conservative MP Jamie Wallis has pleaded not guilty to four traffic offences.

Appearing at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court, Mr Wallis, who represents Bridgend, denied failing to stop, failing to report a road traffic collision, driving without due care and attention and leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position on 28 November last year.

The charges relate to a late-night collision in which a Mercedes hit a lamppost in Llanblethian, South Wales.

Mr Wallis, who is 37 and from Cowbridge in South Wales, was subsequently arrested.

It is the Crown’s case that Mr Wallis was responsible for driving without due care and attention, that he failed to stop after the accident and failed to report within the first 24 hours following the incident, Prosecutor Mike Williams told District Judge Tan Ikram.

Judge Ikram set a date of 11 July for a trial at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court.

In March, Mr Wallis announced that he was trans.

Speaking to Sky News last month, he said he hoped to begin the process of transitioning “as quickly as possible”.
