Police ‘remind’ Rishi Sunak’s family of laws after dog filmed without lead in Hyde Park.

A social media film showed the prime minister’s labrador retriever running free near a leash sign.

Police “reminded” Rishi Sunak’s family of the rules after their canine was captured in London’s Hyde Park off-leash.

The prime minister’s labrador retriever was seen walking near a park lake on social media.

The footage displayed a sign that read, “Dogs must be on leashes,” before showing Mr. Sunak and what appeared to be his wife attaching a leash to their dog, Nova.

It was shared by a TikTok user who commented, “Lol, as if Rishi Sunak put his dog on a leash after seeing me film the sign requiring dogs to be on a leash.”

“We are aware of a video showing a canine being walked off-leash in Hyde Park,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said.

“An officer who was present at the time reminded a woman of the regulations. The dog’s leash was reattached.”

Also the Royal Parks website says that dogs are allowed in all parks except those where they must be leashed.

It states, “These are clearly marked within each park and are typically ecologically sensitive areas, deer parks, children’s playgrounds, restaurants, cafes, and some sports fields.”

Downing Street stated that it would not comment on the video.

“I will not comment on the filming of the prime minister’s family and private individuals,” the spokesman told reporters.

“The video can be viewed; it speaks for itself.”

When asked if Mr. Sunak would apologize for violating the park’s rules, the spokesman replied. “As I previously stated, I will not comment on the video you have seen.”

The Metropolitan Police Department stated that it would have no further involvement in the matter.

It is not the first time police have contacted Mr. Sunak.

The prime minister was fined earlier this year for not wearing a seatbelt while filming an Instagram video to promote his funding increase.

Downing Street issued an apology at the time, stating that he “fully accepts that this was an error.”

The Metropolitan Police have also fined Mr. Sunak for violating confinement regulations.

In June 2020, when restrictions were in effect, he and Mr. Johnson were issued fixed-penalty notices for hosting a birthday party in Downing Street for the former prime minister.
