Prime Minister Boris Johnson pictured drinking at Downing Street party during lockdown | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Prime Minister Boris Johnson pictured drinking at Downing Street party during lockdown | ITV News” – below is their description.

Photographs obtained by ITV News cast fresh doubt on the Prime Minister’s claims that he was unaware of rule-breaking in Downing Street during the pandemic.

The four images show the Prime Minister raising a glass at a leaving party on 13th November 2020, with bottles of alcohol and party food on the table in front of him.

They were taken at a gathering in honour of the Downing Street’s then Director of Communications Lee Cain, with eight people pictured standing closely together, as well as the photographer.
