Latest Downing Street party revelations, and what they could mean for Boris Johnson

BBC, 12 Jan 2022
MPs across the House of Commons are demanding immediate answers on whether Boris Johnson attended a drinks event in the Downing Street garden during lockdown in the UK.

A leaked email, obtained by ITV News, from Mr Johnson's principal private secretary, Martin Reynolds, invited around 100 staff to "socially distanced drinks in the No 10 garden" on 20 May 2020 - when lockdown rules in England banned large outdoor gatherings.

The Prime Minister has so far declined to say whether he went to the drinks.
On Wednesday he'll face MPs at Prime Minister's Questions.

The invitation encouraged people to "bring your own booze" and "make the most of the lovely weather".

BBC Outside Source's Ros Atkins looks at what the latest discovery means for the British prime minister.
