‘100 invited’ to Downing Street garden lockdown drinks
BBC News says as many as 100 people were invited to a “bring-your-own-booze” drinks event in the Downing Street garden during the first lockdown, it is understood.
Witnesses have told the BBC the PM and his wife were among about 30 people who attended the gathering on 20 May 2020.
But Boris Johnson has declined to say whether he was among those there.
The Metropolitan Police said it was in contact with the government over “widespread reporting relating to alleged breaches” of Covid rules.
An email, revealed by ITV News, invited people to “socially distanced drinks in the No 10 garden this evening”.
