London’s Metropolitan Police Service on Tuesday said it would investigate “a number of events” that took place in Downing Street and other government buildings during Covid-19 lockdowns in the United Kingdom in 2020 and 2021.

The announcement heaps extra pressure on prime minister Boris Johnson, who has found himself at the heart of the so-called partygate scandal amid allegations in the media that Downing Street and government staff broke Covid-19 rules on several occasions to host parties and social gatherings . EFE
