The Guardian - Government accused of cover up over battle for Covid evidence

Summary of the front page

The Guardian reports that Labour and Liberal Democrats have accused the government of a cover-up over its opposition to handing over Boris Johnson’s unredacted WhatsApp messages and notebooks to the official COVID-19 inquiry.

The paper also says the PM is facing mounting calls from within his own party to hand over the messages. Some of the relatives of some who died in the pandemic are questioning “what ministers have to hide”. But a spokesperson for Mr Johnson has also told the paper he has “no objection” to his WhatsApps, as well as 24 notebooks, being given to the inquiry.
