  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Dominic Cummings leaves No 10 after days of public infighting” – below is their description.

    Carrying a single box, Dominic Cummings, the prime minister’s chief advisor, has reportedly left Downing Street, days after his right-hand man Lee Cain was also left with no option but to quit. A series of Conservative MPs have welcomed the news as a chance for Boris Johnson to get a fresh start. It was thought the two men would stay on until the end of the year when the transition period ends and Brexit really begins. But their end is apparently now. We spoke to former Justice Secretary David Gauke and to Caroline Slocock, who served as private secretary to Margaret Thatcher – and began by asking her what she made of Dominic Cummings.
