Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Downing Street Christmas Party row: PM Boris Johnson insists No 10 ‘followed the guidance'” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson has urged businesses not to cancel office parties and proceed with caution when his ministers either told people to cancel, wear masks, take tests and not snog strangers – none of which are in the Government guidelines.

Speaking during a by-election campaign visit to Oswestry in North Shropshire, the Prime Minister said that people did not need to cancel parties or nativity plays and Christmas should go ahead ‘as normally as possible’.

Asked what he had to say to bereaved families following claims Number 10 had held parties last year in breach of restrictions at the time, Mr Johnson said: ‘What I’ve said throughout, since this thing was brought up, was that’s not true, we’ve followed the guidance throughout and continued to follow the guidance.
