Boris Johnson was accused of being a pathological liar today after emails revealed he intervened personally to help an animal charity boss friend of his wife flee the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan .

The Prime Minister has previously claimed on camera that it was ‘nonsense’ that he intervened to allow Paul ‘Pen’ Farthing and members of his Nawzad charity flee Kabul at the expense of locals as the extremists closed in last summer.

The heavily redacted correspondence suggests Mr Farthing and his team be classified as animal vets in order to justify their rescue.
