UK PM Johnson leaves Downing Street to make statement on 'partygate' report


British Prime minister Boris Johnson leaves 10 Downing Street to make a statement in parliament after he received a version of an eagerly-awaited report into claims of lockdown-breaking parties at his Downing Street office.

The public and political anger at the apparent double-standards has put Johnson's position in jeopardy, prompting speculation he could be ousted or have to resign. IMAGES
