The Metropolitan Police has moved to reassure the public that a top officer is now reviewing whether last year’s Downing Street Christmas parties broke any laws.
Sergeant John Borisson was put in front of the media today to put minds at rest.
“This will be a fair-minded, independent review of the evidence,” Sgt Borisson said.
“My preliminary findings show absolutely no wrongdoing whatsoever.
“But believe me, I will leave no stone unturned.”
Labour MPs have made complaints that two social gatherings at Downing Street last Christmas broke strict COVID regulations.
Labour insider Lorraine Fisher, 34, was not convinced by the Met Police reaction.
“There is something about this Sgt Borisson that is not quite right,” she said. “We will be taking it up with the Police Commissioner.”
