Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Keir Starmer pushes Boris Johnson over failure to sack Matt Hancock” – below is their description.

During a heated PMQs on Wednesday, Boris Johnson suggested he had a role in the health secretary’s resignation, despite the prime minister’s statement on Friday saying he accepted Hancock’s apology and considered the matter closed.

Hancock resigned on Saturday after apologising for kissing his aide Gina Coladangelo in his ministerial office in breach of Covid-19 rules. Sajid Javid took over from Hancock as health secretary.

Starmer accused Johnson of backing Tories who break the rules, citing the PMs reaction to Dominic Cummings and Priti Patel among others
