Boris Johnson says ‘nobody told me’ Downing Street party broke lockdown rules

Boris Johnson has categorically denied knowing that a gathering he attended in the garden of No 10 was “a breach of the Covid rules”.

The prime minister is under fire after a number of alleged Downing Street parties took place during lockdown, but has already suggested one he attended was a “work event”.
