Sky News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson ‘lied to parliament’ about Downing Street party” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson’s former chief adviser has said the Prime Minister knew in advance about a Downing Street drinks party during the first coronavirus lockdown and agreed that it could go ahead, claims that have been confirmed to Sky News by a second source.

In an updated post on his Substack page, Dominic Cummings said he raised his concerns about the event in the Number 10 garden in May 2020 directly with the PM and would “swear under oath this is what happened”.
