Sky News published this video item, entitled “No 10 officials shown in leaked footage laughing about ‘Christmas party'” – below is their description.

Officials from No. 10 have been caught on camera laughing about a Christmas party that Downing Street has insisted never happened.

The footage, filmed last December, shows a rehearsal for a news conference.

Allegra Stratton, the Prime Minister’s then-press secretary, jokes about a “business meeting” and a “cheese and wine” event that was “definitely not socially-distanced”.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted for several days the event – allegedly held during lockdown – did not happen.
