Stella McCartney has apologised for driving into the back of a taxi.

The fashion designer’s Mini Cooper pranged the back of a cab in west London about a week ago.

She provided her registration number after the incident, but failed to give enough details.

The law states that if you are involved in a collision you must give your full name, address and registration number, or report the incident to the police within 24 hours.

Mini cabdriver Arash Nabezadeh filmed the damage and followed her to the gates of her children’s school to try and get further details, say The Sun.

They add that Stella, 45, took Nabezadeh’s number and her husband, Alasdhair Willis, called the next day to give their insurance details.

Nabezadeh told The Sun: ‘I didn’t even know who she was until my passengers told me. She’s very wealthy. She shouldn’t have done this to me. It’s very unfair.’

Footage from Nabezadeh shows Stella saying: ‘Take the number of my licence plate. Do whatever you need to do, no problem.’

McCartney, the daughter of The Beatles star Paul McCartney, has since said she is ‘very apologetic’ but was ‘intimidated’ at the time.

Her spokesman said: ‘Ms McCartney has never been in this type of incident before.

‘Although she and the taxi driver did not swap full details, Ms McCartney thought that an insurance claim could be made from the licence plate number she was happy to provide, and knew the taxi driver had a full note of. She thought she had done the right thing.

‘When the driver, with two passengers, started filming her after the incident, she felt intimidated particularly when she realised they had followed her to the kids school, still filming her.

‘She accept liability for the incident and is very apologetic for any issues that have arisen from this incident.’
