  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Key moments from Dominic Cummings’ attack on Boris Johnson’s government” – below is their description.

    Dominic Cummings has accused the Government of failing in the Covid crisis and falling  “disastrously short” of the standards the public had a right to expect during the most devastating global pandemic in decades.

    Boris Johnson was also slow to appreciate the significance of the threat from the virus in early 2020 as it spread from China towards Britain’s shores, the PM’s former adviser has told MPs.

    “When the public needed us most, the Government failed,” he said. “I’d like to say to all the families of those who died, unnecessarily, how sorry I am for the mistakes that were made, and for my own mistakes.”

    The apology came as he levelled a series of accusations at the Government and scientists. 

    Watch the video above to see his key claims.
