Downing Street party: No 10 staff joked about party amid lockdown restrictions

BBC News says A video obtained by ITV shows senior No 10 staff joking about holding a Christmas party – days after one was held there during lockdown.

The PM’s then press secretary Allegra Stratton is asked by colleagues about reports of a party, as they rehearse a news conference in December last year.

In jokey exchanges, she says: “This fictional party was a business meeting and it was not socially distanced.”

Downing Street continues to insist no party took place.

But a source previously confirmed to the BBC that a party did take place there on 18 December, with “several dozen” people in attendance.

The mock news conference took place in Downing Street on Tuesday 22 December, without members of the media present.
