Hodge Admits Having Phone in Hand

Margaret Hodge has confessed to having her phone in her hand when she knocked a cyclist off his bike, as Guido reported this morning:

“Mrs Hodge had parked her car and the engine was switched off. As she was getting out of the vehicle she struck a cyclist with the car door. She acknowledges that the accident was completely her fault and that she should have been more careful, which she will be in future. She apologised profusely to the cyclist, who was unharmed. They shook hands before he went on his way. Mrs Hodge had her mobile phone in her hand as she left the car but was not using it.”

Presumably she was about to phone her accountant…
