Partygate: Calls for PM Boris Johnson to Resign Escalate, After Met Police Issues Fines

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is being urged to resign as The Metropolitan Police issues fines linked to gatherings held at government buildings during the pandemic.

Boris Johnson is facing further calls to resign, after the Met Police confirmed it will issue around 20 fines to unnamed people, who breached lockdown rules for parties held in Downing Street and Whitehall.

Mr Johnson was among 100 people who were sent formal legal questionnaires relating to the investigation (Operation Hillman) which was launched in January.

A spokesman for the PM said Mr Johnson had not received a fine at this time but reiterated that Downing Street would make it known if that were to happen.
