Australian police minister reports himself for using phone in car

An Australian police minister says he did not realise he was breaking the law when he picked up his mobile phone while driving..

Troy Grant, a New South Wales MP, was stationary when he took a photo, which he later tweeted from home.

After being alerted to the illegality, Mr Grant reported himself to police to face a A$325 (£203; $250) fine.

"This serves as a massive reminder. Nobody is above the law even if you are the police minister," Mr Grant said.

The minister had been stopped at roadworks when he photographed a car carrying a sheep in front of him.
