The BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg has pinpointed a “staggering” finding within the report published by senior civil servant Sue Gray into the lockdown gatherings hosted at Number 10 Downing Street. Ms Kuenssberg believes the “most serious one” of the alleged parties is the one hosted in the Prime Minister’s private residence.

Ms Kuenssberg told the Newscast podcast: “One of the events that the police are investigating is something that took place in the Downing Street flat and something that Downing Street have always said didn’t take place.

“And the Prime Minister himself has never been pinned down on whether or not he was at that event, Downing Street has always denied it.

“But you know, it is quite staggering if you’d said to someone two or three months ago before this all began oh, by the way, there’s an investigation into whether or not there was a do in Downing Street that broke the law during lockdown, in the flat, you would have been like, what!?

“I think potentially that’s the most serious one for Boris Johnson because what Downing Street has often tried to hang this on well, it was a workplace people were doing the right thing, sometimes it was COVID secure, okay, maybe we got a few things wrong.

“Making the justification about what happened in a private space in the flight is very different.”

She added: “I’ve heard on many occasions that the Prime Minister was there.

“That’s something that Downing Street denies and that’s something that no one has been able to prove.

“But it’s something that the police are now considering.”

The Prime Minister faced renewed calls to resign on Monday after a report found that alcohol-fuelled events at his offices and residence when lockdown rules were in force should never have taken place.

Ms Gray’s report found the gatherings pointed to “serious failures of leadership” at the heart of the British government.

She condemned some of the behaviour in Government as being “difficult to justify”, saying “the excessive consumption of alcohol is not appropriate in a professional workplace at any time”.

“Some of the events should not have been allowed to take place,” she said. “Other events should not have been allowed to develop as they did.”

Mr Johnson made a statement and answered questions for almost two hours in parliament on Monday afternoon following the report’s publication.

He apologised again and pledged to make changes at his office.

“I want to say sorry. I get it and I will fix it,” the Prime Minister said.

Mr Johnson later apologised personally to Conservative MPs at a meeting in parliament.
