- Across all age groups, BAME people were fined at a rate 1.6 times higher than white people.

The figures were released by the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC).

NPCC chairman Martin Hewitt said: "While it is a complex picture, it is a concern to see disparity between white and black, Asian or ethnic minority people."
