Boris Johnson racked up £4,000 in parking fines while working as motoring correspondent

BORIS Johnson racked up £4,000 in parking fines while motoring correspondent at GQ mag, ex-editor Dylan Jones has revealed.

Mr Jones said: “In Boris’s own words, they started accumulating ‘like drifting snow on the windshield’.

“But then he’d written incredibly funny columns, so I figured it was worth it.”

But Mr Jones suspected BoJo got few speeding tickets because he often did not bother to test drive the cars.

He said: "When the cars were delivered to his house in Islington, the car company always made a note of the mileage, something that is standard practice.

“The mileage would also be noted when they came to pick them up again.

“And on more than one occasion — OK, on many, many, many occasions — the mileage was precisely the same.

"So I leave you to draw your own conclusions.”
