Byline: SHAUNA CORR
SINN Fein has confirmed Gerry Kelly removed a wheel clamp from his car after footage emerged on social media.
A spokesperson for the party said the North Belfast MLA's solicitor is dealing with the matter.
They added: "Yesterday, Friday, February 2, Gerry Kelly MLA returned to his car after an early morning gym session to find his car had been made immobile by a clamp just after 7.20am.
"He removed the clamp from the front wheel. He left the device nearby and drove off to pre-arranged meetings. His solicitor is dealing with the matter and he will be making no further comment."
On the video Mr Kelly can be seen bending down to unwrap the chain from around the front right wheel of a silver vehicle parked on a hatched box.
A stop notice had been slapped on the driver's side window of the car.
While the wheel clamp is being removed a pair of bolt cutters can be seen on the ground next to the vehicle.
Councillor Julie-Ann Corr-Johnston said: "Mr Kelly, responsible for upholding the principles of public office, has questions to answer."
