Sky News published this video item, entitled “Prime Minister on Partygate: ‘I take full responsibility”” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson gives a statement to the House of Commons ‘not to mitigate or excuse’ what happened in Downing Street during the COVID-19 lockdown, but to explain.
