Fixed Penalty Notice - Offence code and details dont match
I was stopped this morning for being on the phone whilst driving. The Police officer issued me a fixed penalty ticket which I signed however when I got home I noticed that the offence code has been marked correct - but in the free text the offence has been entered as "failure to wear a seatbelt".

Re: Fixed Penalty Notice - Offence code and details dont match
No, the FPN is effectively an invitation to pay a fixed fee instead of being taken to court. If you were to insist on that then it's likely that the mistake would be corrected on the summons under the 'slip' rule.
