Photos show Boris Johnson drinking at a lockdown event: What’s next for the PM? – BBC Newsnight


UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing fresh questions after photos showing him drinking at an event during a Covid lockdown were published.

The pictures, released by ITV News, are believed to show the prime minister at a leaving party on 13 November 2020.

The BBC has been told that at least one person who attended the event was fined, but the PM was not.

The Metropolitan Police are facing calls to explain why Mr Johnson did not receive a fine.

What does this mean for the prime minister?
