Labour MP, Diane Abbott posted a tweet on Friday evening apologising for drinking a can of mojito on a London Overground train.
According to the MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, a picture of her drinking the canned beverage from Marks and Spencer had begun to circulate on social media and was eventually published by The Sun.
An alcohol ban on public transport in London has been in effect since 2008 and not wishing to cause any offence, Abbott said that she was "sincerely sorry."
A photo of me drinking from a can of M&S mojito on the Overground has been circulated. I'm sincerely sorry for drinking on TFL.
