DANNY Kruger is to donate £100 to NHS Charities Together after being pictured not wearing a mask on a train last weekend. 

The fine for travelling on public transport can be £100. 

In a post on social media, Mr Kruger, MP for Devizes, said: "Since the picture of me not wearing a mask on a train last week was tweeted I have, understandably, received a number of emails and messages asking why this happened.

"It was a simple mistake made in an almost empty carriage: I just forgot I should be wearing a mask, and once I realised my error I covered up for the remainder of my journey. I sincerely apologise for my mistake and for the annoyance it has caused to so many who have been closely following the rules." 

He added: "Travelling on public transport without wearing a mask can carry a £100 fine and I’ll be donating this amount to NHS Charities Together which supports NHS staff in caring for patients throughout the United Kingdom, and especially during the coronavirus crisis."
