BREAKING NEWS: Dominic Cummings says 260-mile trip during lockdown was ‘right thing’

Dominic Cummings has insisted “I behaved reasonably and legally” after it was revealed he travelled 260 miles from London to Durham during lockdown.

When asked by reporters if his trip looked good, he said: “Who cares about good looks? It’s a question of doing the right thing. It’s not about what you guys [the media] think.”

The PM’s top aide, who emerged from his London home on Saturday holding a bicycle and ball, also told off reporters for not social distancing, telling them: “You’re supposed to be more than two metres apart – move out of the way.”
