So I passed my test one month ago and am still not completely confident on the road yet. I drove for the first time on an A road and reached an island operated by traffic lights and i accidentally ran through an Amber but it changed to red as soon as I passed through - didn’t even realise because there was a massive truck in front of me so was just following behind and didn’t even realise it was on amber until i look at the second set of lights. I don’t think there was cameras but I’m just really worried now that I’ll get points on my license. Don’t really give a **** about the £100 fine moreso the 3 penalties I might get

Passing through an amber isn't illegal. Just anticipate a bit more in the future.

Did it turn red after crossing the white stop line? If so you’re fine. Also if the junction is local, if you go past it again, look for a camera usually yellow but could be different. The waze app tells you about most cameras

broadly, there is a bit of lenience for split second things. Very few lights have cameras, like a tiny fraction.
